The Chicago Blackhawks have assigned forward Rostislav Olesz (RAHS-tih-slav OH-lehsh) to the American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs.
This opens the option of re-entry as early as tomorrow, so that's always a possibility if the Hawks want to try to find a taker, although I believe the plan is to keep him down there so the whole cap hit stays off the books, whereas if he was claimed off of re-entry they'd still have the half. All in all the more cap space the better, especially towards the deadline, so I'd be surprised if they recall him.
