Chicago Blackhawks’ Daniel Carcillo placed on IR

Published on December 21, 2011 by   ·   No Comments

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.
