According to Tab Bamford, the Chicago Blackhawks will be recalling defenseman Nick Leddy on Friday and he will play vs. Ottawa.
This news comes soon after the Hawks sent veteran defenseman Jassen Cullimore to Rockford, presumably to make room for Leddy.
This is excellent news. While the ideal scenario would be for Leddy to play top pairing minutes in Rockford, the Hawks cannot afford that with their current crop of NHL defensemen. Leddy needs to be in Chicago.
Who will Leddy be paired with? Unless another move is made, it's between Jordan Hendry and Nick Boynton.
Stay tuned for more Blackhawks news; hopefully Jeremy Morin isn't far behind.
