On Saturday, the Blackhawks placed forward Viktor Tikhonov on waivers.
Tikhonov has zero points, six penalty minutes and is minus-four in 11 appearances this season with the Hawks.
According to a report on AllHockey.ru, SKA has interest in Tikhonov returning to Russia. Tikhonov spent the last four seasons with SKA, but signed with the Blackhawks over the summer with his teammate of three years, Artemi Panarin.
The 27-year-old forward is playing on a one-year deal with a $1.04M cap hit.
