Ahead of Saturday's game vs. the Dallas Stars, the Chicago Blackhawks recalled defenseman Ian Mitchell from the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL.
The team did not specify a corresponding move.
It was a convenient transaction for the Hawks as Mitchell was already in the area with the IceHogs for a weekend series vs. the Texas Stars. Mitchell recorded an assist in Rockford's 3-1 victory over Texas on Friday night.
The Blackhawks have not set their lineup for tonight, but Ian Mitchell could potentially draw in on the blue line. Calvin de Haan, a mainstay of the defensive corps, missed Friday night's game vs. Nashville due to an illness. Erik Gustafsson replaced de Haan in the lineup. Interim head coach Derek King has not provided an update on de Haan's status.
