The Blackhawks have recalled Henri Jokiharju from Rockford (AHL).

With Brent Seabrook (abdomen) out and Carl Dahlstrom (illness) questionable, Jokiharju has been called up and will likely be in the lineup on Friday. Jokiharju has picked up a point-per-game (1G / 8A) in nine games with Rockford since being sent down. He is one of the Blackhawks best defensemen and could remain with the team moving forward as they continue their hunt for the playoffs.

The Blackhawks signed Henri Jokiharju to a three-year, entry-level contract last Tuesday.

Jokiharju, 19, was a first-round pick of the Blackhawks (No.29 overall) in 2017 and is coming off of a 71-point (12G / 59A) campaign with the Portland Winterhawks (WHL). His 71 points ranked tied for third among defensemen in the WHL and represented a 0.45 point-per-game increase from his rookie season. Jokiharju will likely battle for a spot on the Blackhawks’ blueline this fall, but will likely end up back in Portland.
