Bollig Sent to Rockford, Montador Activated
Bollig, 26, appeared in 11 games for the Blackhawks this season but did not register a point. The enforcer complied 40 PIM's and averaged 5:31 TOI per game.
Montador has not played an NHL game since March 27, 2012. Last season he had a total of five goals, nine assists and a plus-4 rating in 52 games. He will not dress against the Colorado Avalanche tonight.
With this move, the Blackhawks have decided to carry eight defenseman on the roster. Good move? Or bad move?
Joel Quenneville seem's to like the idea:
"Defense is a position where you love depth," Quenneville said. "I think this year we've utilized all six in the lineup over the course of a game where everybody gets more minutes than maybe in the past, a little bit more shared minutes. I think the more you get, the better you're going to play.
"I think the first seven (defensemen) we're playing to date are playing extremely well. To have to sit one out right now is always a tough decision. They're deserving of playing. We'll see with (Montador) working his way in is something we'll measure." [ESPN]
With the way Quenneville likes to rotate the lines, giving him another tool to throw in there might just drive every single fan crazy.
