BLOG: S. Jones Returns to the Active Roster

Fellow defenseman and brother Caleb Jones describes the impact that Seth brings to the group with his presence

by Kara Keating @kara_keating26 / Blackhawks.com

After returning to his first team practice on Tuesday, the Blackhawks activated Seth Jones off the IR on Wednesday afternoon ahead of the team's game against the Dallas Stars. 

For Caleb Jones, Seth's presence will help lift some pressure off the defensive unit with his return. The team won't expect too much from the veteran defenseman right away but know he will still create a small impact within the lineup.

"He'll take a lot of pressure off some of us other guys," Caleb said. "We're not going to expect too much from him right away. We got to kind of get him back to full strength but just having his presence in there with a big guy who can skate like that. It'll be huge for us tonight."

Seth Jones returned to the ice on Tuesday to join his teammates in his first team practice since he was placed on IR back on Nov. 1. 

Going into Wednesday's game against the Dallas Stars, head coach Luke Richardson stated that they will see how Jones feels after morning skate to determine if he will play or not. 

"I think we just got a double check," Richardson said. "Today was the first full practice with us but he looked fine. And if he's good to go tomorrow morning, I'm sure it'll be in."

BLOG: Blackhawks Focusing on Creating More Offensive Chances

Chicago has been outshot 145-111 in their last four games and have recorded a total four goals

by Kara Keating @kara_keating26 / Blackhawks.com

After coming off a 3-0 loss against the Carolina Hurricanes, the Blackhawks continue to focus on creating more offensive chances. 

Although they had many different opportunities coming from all four lines, the puck could not get pass Hurricanes' goaltender Pyotr Kochetkov. Taylor Raddysh felt if they could have scored, then that would have changed the momentum of the night. 

"We had some chances," Raddysh said. "I feel like three of the four we had some pretty good looks and honestly probably could have scored. We're getting chances like that the puck will go in and we just have to continue to stay strong there and keep building off that and just be more consistent for sure."

by Kara Keating @kara_keating26 / Blackhawks.com

Closing out the fathers and mentors' trip, the Blackhawks secured a win in regulation for the first time since Oct. 25 with a 3-2 victory against the Anaheim Ducks.

Jarred Tinordi helped carried Chicago to a victory after recording two goals to secure the team's win. Head coach Luke Richardson noted that Tinordi's first goal of the night would be the one to change the momentum of the game after trailing 2-0 in the first period. 

"He had a great game for us by blocking shots," Richardson said. "He was the only one that was really into the game other than our goaltender early on. That goal kind of gave us some momentum."

BLOG: Blackhawks Hope to Strike First Against Anaheim

Patrick Kane also hopes to create more offensive chances after not recording a point in three straight games

by Kara Keating @kara_keating26 / Blackhawks.com

After an unusual start to his season, Patrick Kane looks to turn things around to start producing more points. 

The veteran forward scored 10 points (2G, 8A) in 13 games and did not record a point in the last three games. Although, he describes the start as a little tough, he feels that there have been some positives that can help turn his game around. 

"I feel pretty good," Kane said. "It's been a tough start to the year for me, personally. There are some positives in there because if I can get going and turn it around and get to my normal, usual production I think this team can really take off. I definitely have to get back on track sooner rather than later."
