Today, the Blackhawks placed defenseman Steve Montador (upper body) on the Injured Reserve list. Montador was injured in Tuesday night’s loss at Colorado.
In his place, the Blackhawks have recalled 21-year old Dylan Olsen from the Rockford IceHogs.
Olsen played in two games for the Blackhawks (January 5 @ Philadelphia, January 6 vs Colorado) last month and posted four shots on goal. He was held off the scoresheet but also left the Hawks an even plus/minus.
Read our profile on Dylan Olsen published in late December, eight days before his first NHL call up.
In 44 games with the IceHogs this season, Olsen has 4 goals, 3 assists and is a minus-4. Two of his four goals have come in Rockford’s last four games.
