Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- The Monster Mash

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks made a surprising roster move yesterday when they called up Brandon Mashinter from Rockford.  Mashinter was named the Rockford Ice Hogs Captain earlier this year and is off to a pretty good start with the Chicago Blackhawks AHL affiliation, but I don’t think anyone expected to see Mashinter in Chicago anytime soon.

Ryan Garbutt has been fighting a virus and hasn’t seen the ice in 4 to 5 days, so the Hawks called up another forward for Thursday nights game against the New Jersey Devils.  The Blackhawks will have a lot of decisions to make when Duncan Keith and Michal Rozsival make it back to the roster, so it’s interesting how Stan Bowman plays the salary cap number day in and day out this season.

The Blackhawks will be looking for some revenge tonight when the Devils visit the United Center.  This past Friday, the Devils easily beat the Blackhawks in New Jersey so that loss should be easy for the Hawks to remember and hopefully motivate them to pick up a win on home ice and pick up 2 points.
