It remains likely that Daniel Carcillo (knee) will return on Sunday.

An report earlier this week also suggested that Carcillo would be back on Sunday and that seems more plausible by the day. He has a goal in seven games in 2014-15.

Daniel Carcillo (knee) might rejoin the Blackhawks' lineup on Sunday.

Carcillo has missed eight straight contests due to the injury. He has a goal and two penalty minutes in seven games this season.
Nov 11 - 1:53 PM

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.

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.
Oct 7 - 9:09 AM

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.
Oct 3 - 5:56 PM

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.
Oct 3 - 12:27 PM

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.
