Dave Bolland Not On Minnesota Trip With Blackhawks

Via Chicago Breaking Sports, the Blackhawks will be without center Dave Bolland tonight:

Bolland did not play in the third period of Friday’s 7-4 loss to the Oilers at the United Center due to an unknown injury. The veteran missed Thursday’s practice and Friday’s morning skate.

Bolland missed much of last season following back surgery.

To fill his spot, the Hawks recalled forward Ryan Potulny from [the] Rockford IceHogs.

From the Blackhawks press release about Potulny:

Potulny, 26, shares second on the team with four assists and third with six points (2G, 4A) in eight games with Rockford this season. The Grand Forks, North Dakota, native established career-bests with 15 goals, 17 assists and 32 points in a career-high 64 regular-season tilts with the Edmonton Oilers during the 2009-10 campaign. Signed as a free agent by Chicago on Sept. 9, 2010, Potulny has posted 22 goals and 27 assists in 116 career NHL contests with Philadelphia (2005-08) and Edmonton (2008-10). Prior to turning pro he played three collegiate seasons at the University of Minnesota where he was a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award in his final year with the Gophers.
