Bryan Bickell isn't sulking after being sent to the minors.
"It was nice to get back on the ice and get back playing hockey," Bickell said after practicing with Rockford on Tuesday. "Being down here is going to be the next step in that speed bump in my career right now. Work down here and good things will happen." He is hoping that he can get back some confidence in the AHL and then contribute when he gets another opportunity to play in the big league. Nov 3 - 6:26 PM

Bryan Bickell has been demoted to the minors.

The Blackhawks have called up Marko Dano to replace Bickell on the roster. Bickell has been scratched four times this season and in seven appearances he doesn't have any points.

Bryan Bickell and Viktor Tikhonov will be scratched from Friday's tilt with the Wild.

Unfortunately neither Bickell nor Tikhonov have produced a point in 15 combined games thus far, which just about says it all as fantasy contributors.

For the third straight game, Bryan Bickell will be a healthy scratch for the Chicago Blackhawks.

The 'Hawks are taking on the Ducks, but Chicago won't be making any changes to their lineup. The 29-year-old has no points and just four shots on goal in six games this season.

It looks as if Bryan Bickell will once again be a healthy scratch.

He did not skate on a line during Saturday morning's scrimmage in anticipation of Saturday night's game against Tampa. That is usually a sign a player will not suit up. Bickell has had a rough start to his 2015-16 season being dispatched to the minors, being waived and now being scratched. Stay away for now.

Confirming an earlier report, Bryan Bickell will be a healthy scratch against Florida on Thursday.

The big forward found himself on waivers prior to the start of the regular season, but there were no takers. The 29-year-old has no points and a minus-2 rating in six games for the 'Hawks this season.

Bryan Bickell will spend Thursday's game in the press box.

This isn't shocking given that Bickell was the odd-man out during Wednesday's practice. Bickell has no points and a minus-two rating in six games this season. If anyone had hoped that being placed on waivers prior to the start of the season would light a fire under him, that doesn't seem to be the case.

Bryan Bickell was the odd-man out at Wednesday's practice.

He wasn't skating on one of the Blackhawks' four lines during rushes and could be a healthy scratch Thursday. Bickell doesn't have a point in six games this year and coach Joel Quenneville doesn't sound like he has been impressed. "I thought his last game was ordinary," said the Chicago bench boss. "Other than that, he's been OK."

It appears that at least to start, Bryan Bickell will play alongside Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa Saturday night against Columbus.

Blackhawk coach Joel Quenneville liked what he saw from Bickell as he finished up Thursday's game against Washington on the team's top line. That said, this spot has been a revolving door since the beginning of the season. If you are a risk taker, you might want to pick up Bickell on the chance he wins the lottery spot for more than a shift or two.

Bryan Bickell's trip on the waiver wire has motivated him to step up his game.

"This is maybe a [motivation] to really show that I really want to be here and I don't want to leave, and play like I used to play, and be a physical presence on the ice," he said. "That's what I think we need and I need to bring it every night." Bickell has been scratched before during the regular season to try to spark him, but it hasn't resulted in much success. He also probably won't have much, if any, fantasy value on the third line.
Oct 6 - 11:43 AM

Every player placed on waivers on Friday cleared that process today, including Chicago Blackhawks winger Bryan Bickell.

Rumors are swirling that this may just be the beginning of the process with Bickell. According to reports, this could be a matter of Chicago sending him a "wake-up call" or even a heavy-handed way of increasing the dialog about setting up a trade from the winger. Overall, it's still a situation to watch.

After being waived, Bryan Bickell is taking part in Chicago's practice.

That's not unheard of, but some might interpret it as an indication that Chicago's not sold on sending him to the minors yet. After all, they might have waived him in the hopes of getting rid of his cap hit or, at the very least, gaining the flexibility to send him down later. In other words, even though Bickell's been waived, there's still a chance he'll be a part of the team's opening game roster. We'll have to wait and see.

The Chicago Blackhawks have placed Bryan Bickell on waivers.

This follows a report that the Edmonton Oilers were talking to Chicago about swapping Bickell and Nikita Nikitin. That reportedly fell through though. Bickell has two seasons left on his four-year, $16 million contract. He stood out in 2013 and was particularly good in that year's playoff run, but he hasn't been able to live up to expectations since then. A team still might opt to claim him as he still has value in addition to the playoff experience that being a member of the Blackhawks has afforded him. That $4 million cap hit would be a tough pill for any team to swallow in the current climate though.

Bryan Bickell is still experiencing some of the effects of vertigo.

Bickell was dealing with vertigo during the Stanley Cup Final. "There [are] still symptoms over the course of different situations but I’m working on it every day to get better and better and hopefully it leaves sooner than later," said Bickell. "You just want to be out there. Then [over] the course of the summer you think things are getting better, then you kind of take a couple steps backwards. But I think these last couple weeks we’re taking the right steps and just need to stick with the system that's working and hopefully it doesn't have to take a couple steps backwards. Just keep moving forward." It's not clear if this could cause him to miss any playing time in 2015-16.

Chicago’s recent trades still have not kept Bryan Bickell’s name out of the rumor mill, but the bulky forward hopes to stay with the Blackhawks.

"I hope it's not me<' Bickell said on the upcoming trades. "I love this city. I love winning, really. It's a great feeling and I want to do this for my career." The Blackhawks, however, are still in a very tight cap situation despite parting with Brandon Saad, Patrick Sharp, Johnny Oduya, Brad Richards and Antoine Vermette this off-season. Bickell’s $4 million cap hit over the next two years has the team in a tough situation, as the 29-year-old did not even crack the lineup in five of the Hawks’ six Stanley Cup Final games.
