CHICAGO -- Rookie forward Ryan Hartman will live out a dream and defenseman Kyle Cumiskey will get another shot to revive his when the Chicago Blackhawks face the New Jersey Devils at United Center on Friday.
The Blackhawks recalled the duo from the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League on Thursday, and reassigned rookie forward Teuvo Teravainen. Cumiskey, 28, will take the place of veteran Michal Rozsival, who's out with an upper-body injury. Hartman, the 30th pick in the 2013 NHL Draft, will bring his hard-edged game to the right wing of the fourth line.
"I was just sitting in bed, chilling, and I got the call," said Hartman, 20, who's originally from the Chicago suburb of West Dundee, Ill. "I didn't have any words. I'm kind of speechless. It's good to be here."
