VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- What do the Blackhawks do with Rostislav Olesz?

That's been the question since the former first-round was pick was acquired in a salary-swap with the Florida Panthers for defenseman Brian Campbell.

General manager Stan Bowman said it was a matter of finding exactly where Olesz, once a highly regarded winger with possibly top-six potential, fits with the Hawks. Right now, it looks like nowhere.

ST. LOUIS -- Defenseman Duncan Keith is back in the Blackhawks lineup -- and so are defenseman John Scott and winger Rostislav Olesz.
