Blackhawks Recall Dylan Olsen, Place Steve Montador On IR

Before Friday night’s game in San Jose, the Blackhawks made a change to their roster. Dylan Olsen, the top blue line prospect in the organization, was recalled from Rockford and Steve Montador was placed on IR with an upper-body injury.

Olsen, 21, made his NHL debut on Jan. 5 this season. In two games with the Hawks, he was credited with five hits and one blocked shot, while putting four shots on net.

Simon Danis-Pepin was recalled to Rockford to replace Olsen in the lineup tonight for the IceHogs.

    Now lets keep him here! Dump Lepisto, and let OD only play to give guys days off when needed.

    Speaks volumes on where Lepisto stands with this team. His legacy will be put beside such players such as Tony Salmelainen.

    The tug of war between Coach Q and Bowman over Lepisto. Basically playing 5 deep, besides occasionally putting Scott on the ice for a 4-5 minutes every few games, as an intimidating presence (other teams get much less froggy with Scott in the lineup). OD has stepped up recently , but god did we need another Dman

    It took Monty getting hurt. I’m hoping Olsen puts a spark in the team like Shaw and Hayes just did when they first came up.

    OD needs to stay in Rockford for now. He needs playing minutes. So does Hayes, Smith and Shaw. They come on the scene with a burst but as you see their star fades pretty quickly. Other teams start to match up against them more effectively. Leave these guys down for now. Rent a few players at deadline without giving away the farm. Lick our wounds…..we will be back.

    Even Leddy could use some time in Rockford. He is overmatched playing top 4 minutes at this point in his career.
