The Blackhawks have sent defenseman Nick Leddy to the Rockford Ice Hogs. In his 5 games since being called up, Leddy has zero points, and has been even in his plus minus rating.
With the Hawks off until Saturday's game in Detroit, Leddy has been sent down for salary cap reasons. It's very likely he will be back in time for Saturday's game.
The train to and from Rockford will get a workout all year with the Hawks so pressed against the cap. Every penny counts.
