Blackhawks reduce roster to 24 players

The Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday assigned forwards Jeremy Morin and Brandon Pirri, along with goaltender Antti Raanta, to the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League.

Chicago's active roster includes 13 forwards, nine defensemen and two goaltenders. The Blackhawks, who went 4-0-2 during the preseason, open the regular season Tuesday night against the Washington Capitals at the United Center (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN).

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
