Blackhawks make final roster cuts: who made it?
by Scott King @ScottKingMedia
The Blackhawks looked to have made their final roster cuts at Monday morning’s practice.
Forward Andrew Desjardins was placed on injured reserve after suffering a lower body injury blocking a shot in a preseason game. He’s expected to miss four to six weeks. 19-year-old winger Alexandre Fortin was sent back to Quebec’s junior league after making a case to stick all camp long.
Forwards Brandon Mashinter and Mark McNeil weren’t at practice and will likely be placed on waivers before heading back to Rockford.
Lines and pairings at practice and likely for Wednesday night’s opener at home vs. St Louis:
*Hjalmarsson serving the last game of his suspension on Wednesday.
Healthy scratches: Michal Rozsival (defenseman), Dennis Rasmussen (forward)
