Blackhawks Place Anisimov On IR, Recall Kero

The Blackhawks made a couple roster moves on Thursday morning.

Artem Anisimov was placed on IR, and Chicago recalled center Tanner Kero from Rockford to replace him on the roster. Marian Hossa is still considered questionable for Friday night’s game against Colorado at the United Center.

Kero, 24, currently leads the IceHogs with 20 points (seven goals, 13 assists) in 28 games this season. He appeared in 17 games with the Blackhawks last season, posting three points (one goal, two assists).

Anisimov, 28, left Saturday’s game in St. Louis in the first period after skating 4:10. He had 14 goals and 13 assists in 32 games this season.

  1. We have some depth behind the top 3 at center now: 11, 70, 36, 67. That’s much better than we had a couple of years ago. Good chance to see if anyone steps up.

  2. I liked this young man when the Hawks signed him. I thought or hoped that he would be the answer to the C2/3 position. At first he was scoring at a very high percentage. When they brought him up, it was like he hit a wall on the circus trip; of course being on the 4th line does not help. I hope he has improved at the dot. It seems college player are not very good at the dot.
    I would like seeing him on a line with Panik RW and applesauce LW. , three players that should be hungry. Too bad they cannot give him his #10 (remember Hull started out as #7). Yes, I know that was Sharps and Dennis’s #.
    He plays his position well but will/can he screen at the net and shovel the garbage in?
    Mountain Man, I am counting on you to give me an evaluation, as I cannot get the Hawk games on the tube.
