Chicago Sun-Times

Hjalmarsson back; Barker out

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Niklas Hjalmarsson, who caught a puck in the head while sitting on the bench against New Jersey last week, will return to the Blackhawks' lineup for tonight's game against the Minnesota Wild at the United Center. The Hawks will still be down a defenseman, however, as Cam Barker will sit out. Coach Joel Quenneville said he has an upper body injury. Barker struggled off the ice after taking a hit behind the Hawks' net in Sunday's victory over Anaheim. Cristobal Huet will start in goal tonight.
