Eddie Pasquale practises with Jets for first time since being called up from AHL

WINNIPEG - Eddie Pasquale is ready to step on the ice in his first NHL game if called upon.

The 22-year-old was called up from the AHL earlier this week because Winnipeg backup netminder Al Montoya is injured.

Coach Claude Noel says Montoya isn't just out for a day or two and will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis.

Noel says Pasquale has shown a lot of poise and he has confidence in him.

The coach also says forward Eric Tangradi, picked up this week from Pittsburgh, should see action in Friday's game against the Penguins.

It's still uncertain whether defenceman Zach Bogosian will play but he says he feels ready to return following off-season wrist surgery.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
