Chicago Blackhawks

Anisimov demoted to the third line early in training camp.

Anisimov has played almost exclusively with Patrick Kane during his first two years in Chicago, recording 42 goals and 45 assists (87 points) in 141 games. However, so far in training camp, Nick Schmaltz has been skating on the second line with Kane and Anisimov is centering the third line with Patrick Sharp and Ryan Hartman. This affects Anisimov’s upside drastically, but it’s still early in training camp and he could find himself back in his regular role before too long.

The Blackhawks have placed Artem Anisimov (upper-body) on IR.

Anisimov will miss his third consecutive game on Friday, but head coach Joel Quenneville said he is hopeful that Anisimov will be able to play Tuesday after the Christmas break. His move to IR was simply to create a roster spot to call-up Tanner Kero for Friday’s game.
