The Chicago Blackhawks have reassigned right wing Jack Skille to the American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs.
Skille, 22, has been held scoreless in two games with the Blackhawks this season. The seventh overall pick in the 2005 National Hockey League Entry Draft, Skille registered one goal in three North American preseason games with Chicago before being held scoreless in the team’s two contests in Zurich, Switzerland as part of the Victoria Cup. The Madison, Wisconsin, native has appeared in 26 games with the Blackhawks over the last three seasons (2007-09) collecting six points (4G, 2A).
The Blackhawks (3-1-1) host the Edmonton Oilers at the United Center on Wednesday at 7:30 P.M. The game can be seen locally on Comcast SportsNet and heard on Chicago’s WGN Radio 720.
