Preliminary Rosters Released For Blackhawks vs Habs

The preliminary rosters for Friday night’s Blackhawks game in Montreal have been released. Unfortunately for Hawks fans hoping to read between the lines early in the day, Chicago listed 23 skaters.

Fans can be certain of who will be available in net for the two teams, though. Scott Darling and Mac Carruth will be in net for Chicago, while Montreal will have Carey Price and Zach Fucale between the pipes.

Up front, the Hawks might be led by Teuvo Teravainen and Marko Dano. Andrew Desjardins, Viktor Tikhonov, Ryan Garbutt, Kyle Baun and Dennis Rasmussen are also listed.

There are eight defensemen listed by the Hawks in advance of tonight’s game. Viktor Svedberg and David Rundblad couldĀ play in their third consecutive preseason game. Trevor Daley, Erik Gustafsson, Ville Pokka, Sam Jardine and PTO players Jan Hejda and Lubomir Visnovsky are also on the preliminary roster.

  1. Mostly an AHL roster with a few exceptions for the Blackhawks. Will want to watch Sam Jardine in an actual game – hope he plays.

    Tryouts Paille, Kopecky, Visnovsky, and Hejda all in the lineup.

  2. Hey anyone notice Morin and Tropp haven’t been listed or played in the first two games or this third one? Hmmm …

  3. Good catch HOF I hadn’t noticed that before. I think Morin’s professional career is very much in jeopardy.

  4. I’m surprised there’s no Anisimov. Why wouldn’t you use him as the top center-do it all-leader of this bunch.
    Wait… he ended up injured to some extent against the Wings. That must be it.

  5. Does anyone think that Kopecky has any chance of making the squad? At the TCF scrimmage, he looked pretty slow, but awfully crafty. A couple of nice defensive plays and some sharp passes. I just don’t know if there is any space for another RW on the team. Wonder if any other team in the league is taking a look at him?

  6. No Panarin. I guess he must still be injured. I would be surprised Big Indian if Kopecky makes the team. I am guessing that they will keep 14 forwards: 19,81,86,88,16,11,65,29,Anismov, Panarin,Garbut and Dano. That leaves everybody else fighting for the last 2 spots. Q has some interesting decisions to make.

  7. Have not posted lately due to another hospital stay as well as the fact that I was not at Kane’s house the night in question, (unlike many on this site) therefore I will reserve judgement until the legal process runs its course. After all, in the United States you are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, not a blog.
    Back to hockey, anyone have a idea why Ryan Hartman has not played? I did miss the 2nd game but my daughter said she did not hear his name. I am hoping that this is the year that he gets substantial minutes with the big club to earn a spot. I thought he played very well the 10 min. he played last season.Trevor Daley looked good on the offensive side, still can skate with a heavy shot. Dano looks like a fire hydrant, low center of gravity= stability. Russian must be hurt? Darling looks real good, Seabrook looks very good with the A, I was hoping for Hossa but Brent is the most logical choice and maybe this bodes well for contract extension? Sorry for spelling/grammar trouble, lot’s of pain meds.
