Blackhawks Add Teplý, Lindholm to Taxi Squad

On Friday morning, the Blackhawks recalled forward Michal Teplý and defenseman Anton Lindholm and added them to the taxi squad.

Teplý, 19, was originally drafted by the Blackhawks in the fourth round (#109) in the 2019 NHL Draft. Listed at 6-3 and 187 pounds, he’s a right-handed shot. Last season with the Winnipeg Ice (WHL), Teplý scored 29 goals with 34 assists in 53 games.

Lindolm, 26, was originally drafted by the Colorado Avalanche in the fifth round (#144) in the 2014 NHL Draft. Chicago acquired the defenseman from the Avs in the trade sending Brandon Saad to Colorado. He has five assists in 66 career regular season NHL games.

Madison Bowey cleared waivers and has been assigned to the IceHogs.

    Teply will be interesting. Haven’t seen him much. My readings on him say – he will have hard time keeping pace w How JC wants the Hawks to play. (of course that hasn’t stopped Soderburg from playing)

    On the positive side- size, patience, excellent playmaker, good scoring touch.
    I have a hard time seeing him doing well on bottom 2 lines/fore check , puck pursuit.
    So- to utilize his skills needs to play w 88/24, 88/Janmark? or a 19/8 type line- if 19 ever returns.

    Why not insert Teply in for a game to see how he handles himself – the Hawks could use the size and it seems Teply played well in camp – give him some experience for hopefully one day being a regular in the line up

    A recent survey showed CHI to be the lightest team in the league and one of the shortest

    Wrap,Amen.I thought I was one of a very few that noticed how small and light on their skates that this team is.Other teams coaches and analysts always speak about being hard on the puck.Not so much with the Hawks.It is truly eye opening when you watch the NHL package and take in a few games.The Hawks are light years away from being competitive.The next 4 games will paint a clear picture.2 with the Jackets and 2 with the Canes.Watched the Stars last night.They also look like a handful and their 2 top guys are out.

    Teply might get a game or 2. Wouldn’t be at all suprised he ends up back in Whl when it starts. Could be part of reason he is on taxi squad vs Rfd. camp too. Likely be alot of taxi squad moves in next little while.

    He’s Back!

    Finally sorted out my NAME on this blog.

    My apologies to Tab for using wrong names of BOB and LUGHEAD1957 in previous posts. I don’t know that tab actually checks IP addresses or email IDs, but I don’t mind exposing myself as a bit absent minded at times.

    I am who I am. Lughead actually is more closely related to reality!!
