Richard Panik Out, Ryan Hartman In vs Florida

When the Blackhawks take the ice on Tuesday night against the Florida Panthers, Ryan Hartman will be skating in the place of Richard Panik.

Panik has five goals and nine assists through 30 games this season; three of his goals have come on the power play. He’s been brutal lately, having recorded only one point in his last 11 games. Compounding his lack of points is a lack of shots reaching the net; Panik has been credited with only 15 shots on net over those 11 contests.

Hartman hasn’t been in the lineup since he racked up six penalty minutes against Washington on Dec. 6. He failed to put a point on the board in the first nine games in November before putting up four points over three games to end the month and begin December. Hartman has four goals and 10 assists in 27 appearances this season.

  1. I agree with you Ernie bench time is what Panick has earned. Hopefully Hartman gets back in his groove. Hope Osterle has another good game and earns himself some more ice time.

    Go Hawks!

  2. This season Hartman has produced more than Panik.

    This season Panic has produced more than Sharp.

    I think it is time to give Sharp a few nights off. Maybe the R&R can reignite his game.

  3. Good move. Now how about this one: start giving 7 and 2 a game off here and there to keep them fresh, while also giving 6 some needed action? Seems to me like a no brainer when working with aging guys with many miles on them and younger guys in need of playing time to further their drvelopment.

  4. Maybe Q is running a tryout session of sorts. Whatever works. I do think Panik is a streaky player who was okay at the first of the season. Don’t want to see him totally out of the mix. He’s like Hartman and some others ….. if he gets after the puck aggressively on the boards and on the forecheck he makes a difference. If he doesn’t, he doesn’t.

    Go Blackhawks!!!!

  5. Wow-they may win this game–but this team does not look like a playoff team-and again a sub 500 team playing a back to back kicked their ass in the second.

  6. Watching Bouma skate is like seeing Basil McCrae out there!!! Why?
    And why either Coach Q or Samuelson think putting Seabrook and Murphy, 2 right handed shots together and Osterle and Keith, 2 left handed shots together a good thing? Seems like a no brainer to have Osterle with Seabrook and Murphy with Keith.
