Daniel Carcillo missed his third consecutive game last night when the Chicago Blackhawks saw its five-game winning streak snapped by the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Today, the Blackhawks placed its enforcer on injured reserve.
The Chicago Tribune’s Chris Kuc and Daily Herald’s Tim Sassone both confirmed that the Blackhawks the action, and that the Blackhawks will dip into Rockford to fill the void, for now.
Brandon Pirri will get the call up. He’s registered one assist in one game played with the Blackhawks previously. In Rockford, he’s a point-per-game guy with 13 goals and 18 assists in 28 games.
Via the Chicago Tribune:
“(Carcillo’s) getting better,” Quenneville said Tuesday. “We have four days off after (Wednesday’s) game and hopefully we’ll know more (Wednesday) when we get back and see him. He’s coming along fine.”
Carcillo, 26, has nine points and a team-leading 60 penalty minutes in 26 games. Pirri, 20, has an assist in one game with the Hawks this season.

In what's turning out to be a very busy December for Brendan Shanahan, the Marshall Moo Montana of the NHL has flashed his badge once again, suspending Derek Engelland 3 games for his hit on Marcus Kruger.
Here's Shanny, breakin' it down:
All the standard Shanaban tropes apply here. Engelland has not been fined or suspended during his three seasons, which earns him...

CONSOL Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA
Games against the Blackhawks are always fun. Of course, games against the Blackhawks also mean that the Penguins won't have a full roster, which is obviously the case once again. Craig Adams and Jordan Staal skated this...
Only 23, the Chicago Blackhawks captain even has a Conn Smythe Trophy for playoff MVP on his shelf, staking his claim as one of the top young stars in the NHL.

Christmas came early for Puck Daddy this year. Not only were we blessed with the excellence of the San Jose Sharks' holiday shopping network video last week, but on Thursday we learned that another NHL team actually had created a holiday video that was better.
If you haven't seen the Chicago Blackhawks' Sing-Along Holiday Album yet, you should. It's a Christmas miracle...
