Bryan Bickell was activated from injured reserve Monday by the Chicago Blackhawks and the power forward likely will return to the lineup when the Blackhawks play the Nashville Predators on Tuesday.

Bickell has been out since Nov. 16 with a lower-body injury. In 22 games prior to getting hurt, he had five goals and six points.

To make room on the roster the Blackhawks sent forward Jeremy Morin to their American Hockey League team, the Rockford IceHogs. In 15 games he had one goal and four assists.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
