Antti Niemi will start in net for the Hawks on Friday night in Denver.

Antti Niemi will get his first start in a couple weeks for the Blackhawks in Denver on Friday night against the Avalanche. Cristobal Huet started his fifth straight game last night in Phoenix, taking a 3-1 loss as he allowed the three goals on only 23 shots.

Brian Bickell was recalled from Rockford for Friday night’s game, but not to spell Jordan Hendry. Dave Bolland is a scratch on Friday night because of his ongoing back issues.

Finally, Jonathan Toews and Ben Eager both skated with the team in practice but will not dress again. Hopes are that both will return for one of the Hawks four games in Chicago next week.
