In advance of their game tomorrow in Florida, the Blackhawks have made a pair of roster moves. Per the AHL’s Transactions Log, Chicago has recalled defenseman Isaak Phillips from AHL Rockford. To make room for him on the roster, Jarred Tinordi has been placed on injured reserve retroactive to November 9th.
Phillips has split the season between the Blackhawks and IceHogs, having spent a week with the big club in late October before being sent down last week. He has one appearance with Chicago this year but has logged regular minutes with Rockford, picking up three points in eight games so far. The 22-year-old is in his fourth professional season and is in the final year of his entry-level contract.
As for Tinordi, he left Thursday’s game in the first period with an oblique injury and did not return. The team didn’t provide any further updates but clearly, he’ll miss at least a week with the IR placement. The 31-year-old has played in nine games so far this season, picking up an assist along with 19 blocks and 23 hits while averaging 14:46 per night.
