Minor injuries shelve Hawks' Morin, Olsen
OSHAWA, Ontario -- If you came to the Oshawa Rookie Tournament to see Blackhawks' prospects Dylan Olsen or Jeremy Morin, you were largely out of luck.

Olsen played on Saturday against the Senators, but was held out of the last two games.

"He had a little bit of (lower-body) muscle soreness," Chicago prospects coach Ted Dent said. "He skated a little bit on Monday with the goalies, but he decided not to push it. We just want to let him get ready for the Blackhawks' training camp."

It was the same case for Jeremy Morin, who didn't play a single game in the tournament.

"Morin played in this tournament last year," Dent said. "He's obviously got a year of pro hockey under his belt, and it's just another case where he was a little sore from an upper-body injury so we thought we would keep him out. Keep him ready for camp."

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
