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.

CAP isn't an issue so Rockford shuttle makes no sense

They could be doin a Rockford shuffle in case anyone else goes down. You might as well if you are going to scratch him.

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?

The Cap is still an issue until the playoffs start. I think you're thinking of roster size limits, which end at the trade deadline.

As of not so long ago they were still shipping Leddy back and forth. Not too well versed with how all the cap stuff works, however they could be doing it to recall someone else for ****'s and giggles?

CAP is not an issue

Put Hendry on LTIR and it is not an issue

he was just with the Hawks because of what happend to Bickell before the Stars game. If a player can't play you can dress a full roster

Probably to save money. Not that it matters, but Bowman likes every penny he can have.
