The Chicago Blackhawks have recalled defenseman Jassen Cullimore from the American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs.
Cullimore, 37, has appeared in three games for Rockford this season, collecting one assist and registering a team-best +4 plus/minus rating. The Simcoe, Ontario, native is a veteran of 776 career National Hockey League regular-season games, racking up 77 assists, 103 points and 696 penalty minutes with the Vancouver Canucks (1994-96), Montreal Canadiens, (1996-98), Tampa Bay Lightning (1998-2004), Blackhawks (2005-07) and Florida Panthers (2007-09). Cullimore, who helped Tampa Bay capture the 2004 Stanley Cup, tallied 14 points (2G, 12A) and 117 penalty minutes during his two seasons in a Chicago uniform, which includes his last appearance with the club on April 8, 2007.
The Blackhawks will visit the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena on Friday, October 15 at 6:00 P.M. The game will be broadcast locally on Comcast SportsNet Chicago and can be heard on Chicago’s WGN Radio.
