The Blackhawks have recalled Dennis Gilbert from Rockford (AHL).

This is Gilbert's second call-up of the season and this time he could stick around for a while. Connor Murphy was moved to LTIR on Wednesday, so Gilbert could become a main-stay in the Blackhawks lineup moving forward. He will have to battle Slater Koekkoek for that right and comes up with no points in three AHL games.

Gilbert has been recalled from Rockford (AHL) and will play in the Blackhawks season opener.

Gilbert was with the Blackhawks in Prague so the “recall” was just a formality. Gilbert was a third-round pick in 2015 and will play in his second career NHL game because Calvin de Haan and Connor Murphy are injured to begin the season. The 22-year-old blueliner had 14 points (5G / 9A) in 63 games in his first AHL season (2018-19).
