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 cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
