Hjalmarsson Recalled

Niklas Hjalmarsson was recalled by the Blackhawks today.

This likely means two things: (1) Aaron Johnson gets to sit next to Duncan Keith tomorrow evening, and (2) I’ll have to learn to spell “Hjalmarsson.”  However, unless Hjalmarsson is able to play himself into the top-six before Keith returns, he’ll likely be shipped back to Rockford in short order.  The ‘Hawks will remain willing to scratch Johnson, while making sure Hjalmarsson sees action – even if it’s in the AHL.

And, let’s all hope (1) Hjalmarsson will last more than a shift or two this time around, and (2) this isn’t an indication Keith will be unable to return in Anaheim on the 28th.
