Blackhawks assigned three players to AHL

The Chicago Blackhawks have assigned forwards Jimmy Hayes and Brandon Pirri and defenseman Ryan Stanton to the AHL's Rockford IceHogs.

Hayes, 23, had nine points in 31 regular-season games with the Blackhawks last season, his first in the NHL, and played in two postseason games.

Pirri, 21, had two assists in five games with Chicago during the 2011-12 regular season and paced the club with four goals and five points in four games during the 2011 preseason.

Stanton, 23, has yet to appear in an NHL game.

Quote of the Day

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
