The Chicago Blackhawks have recalled forward Evan Brophey from the American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs.
Brophey, 23, has appeared in all six of Rockford’s regular-season contests this season, sharing second on the club with two goals and pacing the IceHogs with a +4 plus/minus rating. Chicago’s fourth selection (68th overall) in the 2005 National Hockey League Entry Draft, the Kitchener, Ontario, native has registered 36 goals and 56 assists over the course of 238 career regular-season AHL tilts with Rockford from 2007-10.
The Blackhawks will host the Columbus Blue Jackets at the United Center on Saturday, October 23 at 7:30 P.M. The game can be seen locally on Comcast SportsNet Chicago and heard on Chicago’s WGN Radio.
