As many, including me, predicted after the assignment of Jassen Cullimore to Rockford the Hawks have recalled 19 year old Nick Leddy.
Leddy who started the season with the Hawks due to the injury to Brian Campbell is coming off of helping Team USA win the bronze medal in the Junior World Championships.
Jordan Hendry was paired with the rookie this morning during the morning skate. Leddy scored one goal which was his only point during his six game stint with the team earlier in the season. He was a -1 and topped 19 minutes in two of those games. I would expect to see Leddy stick with the team for the rest of the year and might see some time on the struggling penalty kill immediately.
The Blackhawks look to rebound from a tough loss on Wednesday to the Dallas Stars this weekend as they play the lowly Ottawa Senators and New York Islanders.
Now the real question is how long till fellow rookie and bronze medal winner Jeremy Morin stays in Rockford before he gets the call back to Chicago?
