Blackhawks send Gustav Forsling to Rockford

  

Scott Powers scooped the Blackhawks by noticing that Swedish defenseman Gustav Forsling had been mentioned in the AHL transaction notices as being sent to Rockford. Shortly after, the Blackhawks made the official announcement.

This move comes after Quenneville announced earlier today that Artem Anisimov would be inserted back into the lineup Monday against the Tampa Bay Lightning. This development also meant that the Blackhawks would be forced to clear a spot on the roster, which resulted in Forsling (one of the few waiver exempt players) being sent down.

This move leaves the Blackhawks with Duncan Keith, Jordan Oesterle, Brent Seabrook, Connor Murphy, Erik Gustafsson, Jan Rutta, and Michal Kempny available on defense.

    Good move. He’s been floundering a bit.

    Probably the best thing for long term. But while he was here they didn’t run special plays to get him to shoot. That guy has a shot that hurts when it hits. And the longer he was in the show the less he used it. Brilliant.

    Hard, accurate shot. Also good skating the puck up the ice. Unfortunately he’s been up and down deep in his zone lately. Rockford seems like the place for him. Until the other swedish Goose gets benched.
