Jeremy Morin left the BMO Harris Bank Center late Saturday night in route for Chicago. Morin has been recalled to the Blackhawks.
The 20-year old winger received word of his recall after an IceHogs’ 4-2 victory over Milwaukee.
Morin missed Saturday night’s IceHogs contest serving the final game of a 3-game suspension he incurred as result of last Sunday’s elbowing incident on Milwaukee Admirals’ forward Joel Champagne. Morin miss all three IceHogs games this past week. The team does not play again until Wednesday night, when the Toronto Marlies visit the BMO.
In 23 games this season in Rockford, Morin has 5 goals and 10 assists. He’s a plus-1 with 56 penalty minutes.
After missing 9 months with post-concussion symptoms as a result of an Andrey Zubarev hip-check on January 15, 2011 at the Chicago Wolves, Morin finally returned to action on October 14th in Abbotsford.
Morin scored on his second shift in his return, on his first shot on goal. He also scored in his second game back, also in Abbotsford, two days later. Since, Morin has 3 goals in 21 contests. Two of those came in one game, at Peoria on November 11th. Read more
