Don’t wait for the IceHogs’ leading goal scorer to be back in Rockford, at least for the time being.
Jeremy Morin was told he is up with the Blackhawks for the remainder of the season.
So, unless there is some major change in direction, don’t expect him to be back in Rockford before then, if ever.
I suppose there is a chance he’d return to Rockford in the event the IceHogs team makes the playoffs and the Blackhawks are healthy enough to the point Morin slides down the depth chart far enough. But that would also have to mean Teuvo Teravainen would play outstanding enough that the Blackhawks would no longer care about burning a year on Teravainen’s slide-eligible entry level contract – which contrary to what is being insinuated publically, they are not planning to do so at this time.
–In case you missed it last week, Odds and Saads will be a weekly feature here on TheThirdManIn.com. This is part one of two for this week.
Teuvo Teravainen will make his NHL regular season debut for the Blackhawks when they host the Dallas Stars at the United Center.
