On a sunny Sunday morning after winning their fourth straight game, the Blackhawks announced a number of roster moves.
Veteran defenseman Jake McCabe was activated off the COVID list, which is good news. The blue line played well with McCabe and Seth Jones away, but having either/both of them back should improve that unit. It also (cough) starts to rebuild the team’s depth in the event (cough) the team wants to engage in (cough) trade conversations.
Forward Mike Hardman and goaltender Cale Morris were recalled to the taxi squad.
And the Blackhawks assigned forward Lukas Reichel and defenseman Ian Mitchell to the IceHogs.
