The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that they recalled forward Joakim Nordstrom and goaltender Scott Darling from the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League and reassigned forward Ryan Hartman and goaltender Antti Raanta to Rockford.
Nordstrom, 22, has recorded two assists in 24 games with Chicago this season. The Stockholm, Sweden, native has tallied 16 points (9G, 7A) in 23 games with Rockford this year; he collected his first career hat trick and added an assist on Dec. 13 at Lake Erie. Nordstrom was the team’s third-round selection (90th overall) in the 2010 National Hockey League Draft.
CITY in Canada will televise "Rogers Hometown Hockey" on Sunday at 5:30 p.m. ET. The show will be followed by the game between the Vancouver Canucks and New York Islanders. The location this week is Boischatel, Quebec, and the half-hour program will celebrate the city's iconic hockey story.
Among the features airing on the pregame show:
* Hockey fans remember Paul Henderson's game-winning goals in the 1972 Summit Series against the Soviet Union and Sidney Crosby's golden goal in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. But Marie-Philip Poulin scored the tying and winning goals for Canada's women's hockey team against the United States at the 2014 Sochi Olympics -- and many may not yet know her name.
The Detroit Red Wings erased a pair of two-goal deficits in the third period, highlighted by Pavel Datsyuk’s tying goal with 1:48 left in regulation, before Niklas Kronwall completed the comeback by scoring 36 seconds into overtime to defeat the Dallas Stars.
* The Red Wings improved to 33-14-10 (76 points) to keep pace with the Montreal Canadiens (38-16-5, 81 points) and Tampa Bay Lightning (37-18-6, 80 points) – who also won on Saturday – in the Atlantic Division.
* Elias says the Red Wings are the first team to trail by two goals (or more) in the third period, tie the game, and fall behind by at least two goals again before eventually winning since Jan. 16, 1934 when the Toronto Maple Leafs earned a 7-4 overtime win against the Ottawa Senators. In that game, the Maple Leafs trailed 2-0 at the start of the third period before tying the game at 2-2; the Senators then pulled ahead 4-2 before the Maple Leafs forced overtime; they scored three times in the extra period.
Zetterberg, the Red Wings' captain and leading scorer, finished with 11:24 of ice time in 18 shifts and did not have a point in Detroit's 7-6 OT victory at American Airlines Center.
Apps played for the Maple Leafs from 1936 to 1948; he scored 201 goals and 432 points in 423 games. He won the Stanley Cup three times and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1961.
"I know my father would be both honoured and humbled to be included as part of the Toronto Maple Leafs Legends Row with the likes of Teeder Kennedy, George Armstrong, Johnny Bower, Darryl Sittler and Borje Salming," Syl Apps Jr. said in a statement released by the Maple Leafs. "He was always proud to have been a member of the Leafs organization."
"We won't know the severity of his injury until we get back home," coach Claude Julien said Saturday.
