Jeremy Morin's highly anticipated call-up lasted only two games. The Blackhawks sent their top prospect back to the Rockford IceHogs Monday.
The 19-year-old winger played nine minutes, three seconds Sunday against the Edmonton Oilers, recording only one shot. His NHL debut Saturday in Atlanta will be remembered for his willingness to block a shot that ended his first game prematurely.
''It was nice he showed he could play both sides of the puck," coach Joel Quenneville said. "At that time of the game, it was a big block. It showed he's willing to do anything to keep the puck out of the net.''
Morin's assignment doesn't mean Dave Bolland (rib) is set to return from injured reserve. Bolland is expected to return this week, but Bryan Bickell was also a healthy scratch Sunday.
