According to the roster on the Blackhawks’ website, rookie defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk has been placed on Long Term Injured Reserve. The designation means van Riemsdyk will miss at least 10 games and 24 days, but it appears he’ll be out longer than that.
van Riemsdyk was injured in the first period of Sunday night’s win over Dallas at the United Center. The Hawks are expected to recall a defenseman to fill van Riemsdyk’s roster spot either Tuesday or Wednesday, with Klas Dahlbeck and Kyle Cumiskey reportedly being the front runners for the NHL roster.
Before Sunday night’s victory, Pat Foley spoke with the media about being inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. He’s been the voice of the Blackhawks for many of us, and the honor is well deserved. Congrats!
The Blackhawks celebrated Brad Richards’ 1,000th career game with a third period offensive explosion, blowing the Dallas Stars out 6-2 in their final home game of November.

After announcing that Peter Regin had been sent to Rockford and Joakim Nordstrom recalled, the Blackhawks made another roster move on Saturday evening.
The Hawks recalled goaltender Scott Darling from Rockford and assigned goaltender Antti Raanta to the IceHogs.
Om Saturday evening, the Blackhawks recalled forward Joakim Nordstrom from the Rockford IceHogs. Nordstrom, 22, was named the IceHogs captain on Oct. 28, and has eight points (five goals, three assists), in 14 games this season.
Last season, Nordstrom registered one goal and two assists in 16 regular season games with the Blackhawks and appeared in seven playoff games.
On Saturday, the Blackhawks sent forward Peter Regin back to Rockford, signaling the return of Daniel Carcillo for Sunday’s tilt against Dallas. Regin had one assist in four games with the Blackhawks since being recalled.
The Blackhawks entered Friday night’s game in Detroit having enjoyed a lot of recent regular season success against their rivals. But with Pavel Datsyuk back in the lineup, the Red Wings dominated a hapless Hawks team.
This isn’t the first time we’ve banged the drum for one of the Blackhawks’ all-time greats to get into the Hockey Hall of Fame. But hopefully it’s the last.
Steve Larmer should be in the Hall already. Looking ahead 12 months, he might have a chance in 2015.
The Blackhawks came into Tuesday night’s game on a five-game losing steak to the Lightning, all of which had come by one goal. But on this night, Chicago had the extra marker.
It took 65 minutes and a couple extra shooters for the Blackhawks to earn a second point at the expense of the first place Lightning.
