In a surprising move announced late Sunday morning, the Blackhawks recalled Jack Skille from Rockford.
The Hawks have, because of injuries to forwards, had a number of players riding back and forth from Rockford already this season. Because of the Hawks salary cap situation, though, Skille had been stuck in Rockford for most of this season in favor of Bryan Bickell or Jake Dowell. Skille has 26 points in 32 games in Rockford this year, but carries a cap number of over $1 million because he was selected with the seventh overall pick in the 2005 draft.
No other transactions have been announced for the Hawks yet, but the only known injury concern on the team is Cam Barker, a defenseman.
As any additional news comes, we’ll let you know.
