Chicago coach Joel Quenneville says Saturday that Handzus has an upper-body injury. The 36-year-old forward has a goal and two assists in nine games this season.

Forwards Jeremy Morin and Brad Mills, who were promoted from Rockford of the AHL on Friday, are expected to play against the Wild on Saturday night.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
