The Chicago Blackhawks announced yesterday that they have recalled forward Vinnie Hinostroza from Rockford.
The 22-year-old hasn’t played with the Blackhawks since Feb. 21 but during that time he managed six goals and eight assists for a total of 14 points in 48 games.
Although he won’t be playing tonight against Columbus, it’s highly likely that he will be back on the ice before playoffs.
Hinostroza said in a press conference today that since he’s been back in Rockford, he’s been working hard to get back to playing with the Hawks.
“My goal is always to come back here…the beginning of the season you’re nervous. You’re a young guy. You don’t know what to expect but I was [with the Blackhawks] for a while this year so I know what to expect. I’m looking to, when I get the the chance, grab the opportunity and make the best of it.”
The Hawks take on the Blue Jackets tonight who are currently sitting second in the league with one more point than the Hawks at 106.
The Blue Jacket’s lost last night in OT to the Hurricanes with a final score of 2-1 whereas the Hawks tallied five goals on Wednesday to claim the win over Pittsburg with a 5-1 final.
