My personal favorite Blackhawk, Andrew Shaw, as well as Michal Handzus are both out tonight against the Wild.
Shaw is sitting because of an upper body injury whereas Handzus is sitting from an illness.
Two other well-traveled Hawks prospects had an opportunity to make an impact in the game against the Wild and potentially Against Anaheim on Friday night.
Joakim Nordstrom made a return to the lineup against the Wild. Nordstrom made the team coming out of camp, and is called a penalty-killing specialist by ESPN, but was demoted after just 8 games.
Jeremy Morin, the other prospect called up, and Nordstrom, played on the third line together tonight. Nordstrom played center with Morin on the left wing.
Morin, on his third call up from the Rockford IceHogs, scored his first goal of the season tonight; however, the Hawks lost 4-3.
