Daniel Carcillo is expected to miss about four weeks due to an apparent knee injury.
He was injured in Saturday's match against St. Louis when he appeared to hyperextend his knee on a hit from the T.J. Oshie. The Blackhawks may place him on long-term injured reserve, so they can bring up Joakim Nordstrom or Peter Regin. Carcillo has one goal, 14 shots and nine hits in seven games. Oct 27 - 11:53 AM

Dan Carcillo injured in his knee in Saturday's loss to the St. Louis Blues.

Carcillo was injured after taking a hit from Blues' forward T.J. Oshie in the third period. Hawks' coach Joel Quenneville said that Carcillo could miss several weeks.

For those of you waiting for Daniel Carcillo to explode and be assessed all sorts of major penalties, maybe you should come up with another plan.

In his second stint with the Blackhawks, Carcillo is playing very disciplined hockey. He has drawn more penalties than he has taken (5 to 1) and has kept his temper in check without losing effectiveness as a pest. Great for the Hawks and Carcillo himself. Bad for any hockey pool owners who were hoping for Carcillo to engage in his old shenanigans.

Daniel Carcillo is expected to open the regular season with Chicago after he signed a one-year contract with the club on Saturday.

The Blackhawks have one cut remaining and it's expected to be Brandon Mashinter, who became expendable after the team brought Carcillo back.

Daniel Carcillo thinks the traditional enforcer role is now "extinct."

That being said, Carcillo still thinks there's room for him on Chicago's roster. To be fair, Carcillo isn't a pure enforcer even if that's a big part of his job description. While he was limited to five points in 57 games last season, he is capable of chipping in more offensively.

Daniel Carcillo has officially been invited to the Chicago Blackhawks' training camp.

Carcillo took part in the Pittsburgh Penguins' camp, but they ultimately released him from his tryout contract. We would be surprised if Chicago signs to anything more than a two-way deal him despite his history with the club. He had four goals, five points, and 100 penalty minutes in 57 games with the New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings in 2013-14.

Daniel Carcillo has reportedly been added to Chicago's training camp roster.

He was released from his professional tryout by Pittsburgh on Thursday. Carcillo played two seasons with the Blackhawks before he was traded to Los Angeles. In 57 games with the Kings and the New York Rangers last year, he posted five points and 100 penalty minutes.
Oct 3 - 10:57 AM

Daniel Carcillo has been removed from Pittsburgh's training camp roster.

Carcillo had been playing with the Penguins on a professional tryout contract. He might still join another team as a bottom-six forward, but at this point we wouldn't be surprised if he's forced to start the season in the AHL.
Oct 2 - 9:04 AM

Daniel Carcillo has a lingering foot injury from last season.

However, coach Mike Johnston said that Carcillo could still play in Saturday's preseason contest. The pesky forward is attending Pittsburgh's camp on a professional tryout, so missing any time due to injury would significantly hurt his chances of getting an NHL contract.

Daniel Carcillo believes he can help make the Penguins tougher to play against this season.

Carcillo was invited to Penguins camp on a pro tryout, so there’s no guarantee he will make the team. "(Steve) Downie is here, I’m here. We’ll play a rough style of hockey," said Carcillo. "It will make the skill guys here a lot more comfortable with us around." If the Penguins are intent on protecting players like Malkin and Crosby on the ice, they may want to consider keeping Carcillo around.

Daniel Carcillo has received a professional tryout from the Pittsburgh Penguins.

He will attend Pittsburgh's camp to try to land an NHL contract. Carcillo played 57 games last season split between the Los Angeles Kings and the New York Rangers. He registered five points and 100 penalty minutes.
Sep 4 - 10:13 AM

Still without a contract, time is running thin for unrestricted free agent Daniel Carcillo to sign a deal on time for training camp on Sept. 18.

Carcillo scored two big goals in eight playoff games last year to go along with 22 penalty minutes. He had five points and 100 penalty minutes in 57 games with the Kings and Rangers last season. The 29 year-old made just $825,000 in each of the past two seasons, but with the salary cap shrinking, teams are having trouble dishing even that kind of money out for an enforcer. Carcillo has the option of attending training camp on a tryout basis if he receives an invitation.
Aug 31 - 10:11 AM

Daniel Carcillo will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

It is likely that the Rangers will allow him to go as they already have an enforcer in Derek Dorsett. If the Rangers trade Dorsett, then Carcillo could return as he will have a role to fill. Carcillo missed the Stanley Cup Final as he was given a six game suspension for abusing an official in the Conference final and was a healthy scratch the final two games against the Kings when he was eligible to return.

Daniel Carcillo will reportedly not be in the Rangers' lineup on Wednesday.

Carcillo is eligible to return after serving his six-game suspension. He has experience overcoming a 3-0 series deficit, but he's also been used sparingly in the playoffs, so this isn't a big surprise.
Jun 11 - 6:50 PM

Although Rangers coach Alain Vigneault wouldn't confirm that Daniel Carcillo would return to the lineup on Wednesday, he did praise the forward.

"He would bring what he's brought to us all year long, is a real good energy," Vigneault said of Carcillo. "He's been in these situations before. He's been a good player for us. If we do use him tonight, I'm sure he'll be ready." Carcillo was part of the 2010 Philadelphia Flyers squad that overcame a 3-0 deficit. He hasn't been allowed to play in the Stanley Cup Final until now because he was serving a suspension.
