The Chicago Blackhawks have assigned Viktor Svedberg back to AHL Rockford.

Svedberg was recalled to fill in during the pre-season finale, so he will be starting the regular season down on the farm. Svedberg is capable of pushing for a spot on the big club later on in the season, so don't be surprised to see him resurface.

The Chicago Blackhawks have recalled Viktor Svedberg for Saturday's pre-season finale.

Niklas Hjalmarsson is suspended, and veterans Duncan Keith and Brian Campbell may get the game off, so Svedberg will get another opportunity to show that he belongs in the show. He won't begin the regular season in Chicago, but that doesn't mean we won't see him later on.

A bit of a surprise move but perhaps even the cap-strapped Blackhawks aren't immune to being cut-throat. Svedberg posted just four points in 30 games last season with Chicago, including no points in three playoff games. In three seasons of experience in AHL Rockford, he's posted just 38 points as well.

Viktor Svedberg, Jiri Sekac, and Rob Scuderi will each be scratched from Saturday's match with Dallas.

This will be Scuderi's third straight on the pine, while tonight marks two in a row for both Svederg and Sekac. Considering how little they each impact the stat sheet, this is of little consequence to fantasy pools.
