Sharp will miss Blackhawks' home opener
CHICAGO -- Despite participating in the morning's skate, Chicago Blackhawks center Patrick Sharp has been ruled out for Saturday night's home opener against the Detroit Red Wings at the United Center, the team confirmed this afternoon.
 
Prospect Brandon Pirri has been recalled from Rockford of the AHL to replace Sharp in the lineup. No details about Sharp's injury have been released yet.

Pirri, 19, was selected in the second round (No. 59) of the 2009 Entry Draft. He played at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute last season and tallied 43 points (11 goals, 32 assists) as a freshman.
Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
