On Friday the Blackhawks recalled Vinnie Hinostroza from Rockford.
Hinostroza, 23, has nine goals and 13 assists in 23 games for the IceHogs this season. He was originally a sixth round (#169 overall) pick by the Blackhawks in the 2012 NHL Draft and played at Notre Dame for two seasons before signing a professional contract.
Hinostroza reportedly did not travel with Rockford on Thursday, keeping him available to join the NHL club.
Tanner Kero was assigned to Rockford.
