FEATURE: Koekkoek settling in nicely with Blackhawks

The Blackhawks acquired the defenseman from Tampa Bay in January and the organization has been impressed with his play

by Chris Wescott / blackhawks.com

Jeremy Colliton didn't hesitate or have to gather his thoughts when asked about his newest defender. He was ready to talk about him.

"Yeah, he's been a really nice surprise for us," he said.

The Blackhawks head coach has enjoyed having Slater Koekkoek on the roster since he arrived from Tampa via trade back on Jan. 11. Chicago parted with Jan Rutta and a seventh-round pick and received the 24-year-old blueliner and a fifth.

The acquisition of Koekkoek has flown under the radar with the current trade talk of the town centering around Dylan Strome's production. Since being acquired from Arizona on Nov. 25, Strome has compiled 11 goals and 20 assists for 31 points in 34 games.

Koekkoek's contributions may not show up on the stat sheet as loudly as Strome's, but the 10th-overall pick in 2012 has made an impression of his own.

FEATURE: Sikura is shipping up to Boston... again

Dylan Sikura was recalled by the Blackhawks on Monday and will make his return to the lineup in Boston, a city he knows well

by Chris Wescott / blackhawks.com

This time last year, Dylan Sikura was lacing up his skates in Boston, but it wasn't in a Chicago Blackhawks sweater. It was in his Northeastern University gear.

Sikura was a member of the Northeastern squad that beat Boston University for Beanpot supremacy for the first time in decades.

"It's one of it not the biggest reason I returned my senior year, to try and get that trophy," said Sikura, who was recalled by Chicago on Monday just in time for a return to Boston where the team will play on Tuesday night.

"For us, it was the first time in 30 years [we won.] It was pretty surreal. It was something that team will share forever."
