Bryan Bickell News

Bickell is out indefinitely after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

Bickell, 30, has one goal in seven games this season, but multiple sclerosis will make it very difficult for Bickell to return to the ice. Josh Harding was able to deal with it in Minnesota for one season, but is out of professional hockey all together now. Don’t expect to see Bickell on the ice anytime in the near future.

The Blackhawks have reassigned Bryan Bickell to Rockford (AHL).

Bickell cleared waivers back on October 3rd, but stayed with the team through the first month of the season. Bickell served as a healthy scratch in four of the last five games. He had no points and a minus-3 rating in seven games this season.

Bickell cleared waivers, but will stay with the Blackhawks.

Bickell, who was placed on waivers on Friday, cleared on Saturday at noon but head coach Joel Quenneville said Bickell will not be sent to Rockford (AHL) at this time. The Blackhawks have been trying to move Bickell, who carries a $4M cap-hit but has had an impossible time finding someone to take on the contract.

Bickell (upper-body) will return to the Blackhawks lineup on Thursday.

Bickell has missed the last six games with an upper-body injury, but will be back in tomorrow vs. the Wild. Jonathan Toews out, Bickell in? Does not really seem like a recipe for success, but we are almost in the post-season where Bickell splashed onto the scene last season.

The Blackhawks have activated Bryan Bickell (lower-body) from injured reserve.

Bickell has not played since November 19 against the Avalanche. In 22 games this season he has registered five goals and one assist. With his activation from IR the Blackhawks have returned Jeremy Morin to the AHL. Bickell will likely make up one of the NHL's best third lines with Andrew Shaw and Brandon Saad.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said Bickell will practice today, expects him to play before Christmas, maybe return against the Canucks on December 20.

Bickell has missed the last 12 games with a lower-body injury that he suffered in the first period of a game vs. Colorado on November 19. He has not been the offensive force that he was in last year's playoffs (5G /1A in 22 games) but his physical presence will be a welcomed addition to the Blackhawks lineup.
