Well that was one great run by Stephen Johns!  One day on the Blackhawks roster and today he is reassigned to the Rockford Ice Hogs.  Not sure what the point of the moves were yesterday but I’m sure it was to stay Salary Cap Compliant.

The Hawks roster is basically set at everyone playing every game except for the backup goalie for now so expect more roster moves before now and Thursday night in Calgary at the beginning of the Blackhawks circus trip.

Stephen Johns was a surprise call up yesterday and it looks like today is an even bigger surprise that he only lasted one day.

There are more move where that came from for sure though!
