The Chicago Blackhawks have assigned forward Ben Smith to the American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs.
Smith, 22, ranks third on the IceHogs with 15 goals, including a team-high two shorthanded markers, and has added 10 assists in 55 AHL tilts this year in his professional debut. The Avon, Connecticut, native has appeared in three games for the Blackhawks this season.
Only way they would get rid of 1 player is if 2 are coming back because sharp got injured tonight, no? So doesn't this mean 2 of sharp, bolland, and campbell are expected back, they plan to call up 2 different players, or a combo of the two?
