On Thursday morning, the Blackhawks made a few roster moves in preparation for the season beginning on Saturday.
Forwards Brandon Pirri and Jimmy Hayes and defenseman Ryan Stanton were sent back to Rockford. The Hawks roster now stands at 24 players, with Steve Montador expected to be placed on IR shortly.
That means Brandon Saad will be with the Blackhawks in Los Angeles; Brandon Bollig will be there as well. Will one/both/neither of them dress? We’ll see in two days.
