On Friday morning, the Blackhawks recalled forward Phillip Danault from Rockford.
Danault, 22, has one goal and one assist in six games with Rockford this season after returning from summer surgery. The move is intriguing on a couple levels. Marcus Kruger was limited on Thursday night, and the Blackhawks opted to bring up Danault rather than recalling Tanner Kero and/or Ryan Hartman.
He appeared in two games with Chicago last year.
