According to Tab Bamford of the Commited Indians Blog, reports that Nick Leddy will be recalled by the Blackhawks, and will play Friday versus Ottawa.
This would explain the Blackhawks decision earlier today to send Jassen Cullimore to the Rockford Ice Hogs.
While Leddy may not be completely NHL ready at this point, he's likely a better option than the alternatives of Cullimore and Nick Boynton.
In 6 games this season, Leddy had 1 goal and was a -1. He just finished competing in the World Junior Championships, where he won a bronze medal with Team USA. In the tournament's 6 games, he had 3 assists and was a +1.
