The Chicago Blackhawks made their first real training camp roster cut Saturday, when they assigned 12 players to the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL.

Forwards: D.J. Busdeker, Liam Folkes, Carson Gicewicz, Riley McKay, Dylan McLaughlin, Garrett Mitchell, Chris Wilkie, Chad Yetman and Kale Howarth

Defenseman: Ryan Stanton

Goalies: Tom Aubrun and Cale Morris

There are no surprises among this group as they all were expected to play in the AHL this coming season. With these moves, the Blackhawks’ training camp roster currently stands at 49 players: 28 forwards, 16 defensemen, and five goaltenders.

The one big surprise remaining in Chicago’s camp is Dmitri Osipov, who shifted from defenseman to forward this summer. Osipov, who is on an AHL contract, had one shot on goal, three hits, and one fight in 10:33 of ice time in Chicago’s 6-3 preseason loss to the St. Louis Blues on Friday at the United Center.

The Blackhawks and Blues face-off for the second half of the home-and-home Saturday at the ECHL’s Kansas City Mavericks’ Cable Dahmer Arena in Independence, Missouri.
