Blackhawks Assign Scott Darling to Rockford

On Friday morning the Chicago Blackhawks announced that goaltender Scott Darling has been assigned to the Rockford IceHogs.

Darling, 25, appeared in three games for the Hawks after Corey Crawford left the lineup with an injury. He compiled a 2-1-0 record, allowing six goals against 90 shots (.933 save percentage).

This means the organization has opted to stick with Antti Raanta as Crawford’s backup. In three appearances, Raanta is 1-2-0, allowing six goals against 90 shots (.933 save percentage) with one shutout.

  1. As someone from Ontario I miss the Rockford talk that was generated last year-
    Two possible quality goalies and lots of depth, might it be a playoff year for the IceHogs?

    I bought their cream jersey for my pick-up hockey–got a little surprise with the duty and shipping costs-lesson learned. Nevertheless it looks sharp!

  2. Darling looks like he’s a diamond in the rough. I wonder if between him and Raanta if Crawford may be moved if the hawks are in a cap crunch. Doubt it, but never know what a team like Winnipeg may be willing to give up for a quality guy in net.

    Hogs are first in their division, although they have played 2 more games. And put an absolute whooping on San Antonio. Pokka had a goal and an assist. Teuvo has a couple game point streak. And Danault and McNeil are tied for the team points lead (Danault has 8 points in 8 games.) 4 first round picks since the 2011 draft. Kids look like theyve come to play. Its early but the team GAA is 1.86.

    Offensively Clendening and Brennan haven’t put their usual numbers up..yet. Team looks like they could make a deep playoff run.
