The Chicago Blackhawks and general manager Kyle Davidson announced a roster move on Wednesday.
After being activated off of IR, Wyatt Kalynuk has been sent to the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL.
It's not necessarily bad news for Kalynuk.
Expectation is that Kalynuk will get in some playing time before he rejoins the Blackhawks to get back with the main roster.
Kalynuk has 10 points in 8 games in Rockford this season and will likely make his NHL debut later on this season.
Wyatt Kalynuk assigned to Rockford after being activated from LTIR last night. IceHogs play tonight at home against Iowa, where the defenseman likely makes his season debut coming off an ankle sprain suffered in training camp. #Blackhawks https://t.co/JONmf3VAZU
