Jimmy Hayes is next line.

The 6-6, 221-pound rookie winger was called up by the Blackhawks on Thursday as center Brandon Pirri was sent back down to the Rockford IceHogs.

Hayes, who was acquired from the Maple Leafs for the 43rd overall selection in the 2010 draft (Bradley Ross) on June 26, 2010, will make his NHL debut Friday against the Red Wings.

It took only one game for the Blackhawks to start the Rockford shuffle. With the statuses of Dave Bolland and Ben Smith up in the air, the Hawks went to the farm again to fill out their roster.

With Dave Bolland suffering from an undisclosed upper-body injury and Ben Smith still recovering from a concussion, the Blackhawks recalled rookie center Brandon Pirri from the Rockford IceHogs on Thursday.

The Blackhawks cut one of the more impressive players at training camp and one of the more disappointing on Monday after wrapping up preseason play.
