The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that they have recalled forward Brandon Pirri from the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League. Additionally, the team has assigned forward Jimmy Hayes to Rockford.
Pirri, 22, has tallied three assists in three games with the IceHogs this season. He leads the team in assists, shares second in points, and is second in shots on goal (10).
