The Panthers have recalled Anthony Stewart and Tanner Glass from Rochester.
The Blackhawks have recalled Jack Skille and Jordan Hendry from Rockford. They have also placed David Koci on waivers.
Bob McKenzie is reporting that Brad Richards has likely been playing the last 8-10 weeks with mononucleosis. That would explain a lot.
