The Blackhawks have recalled defenseman Jassen Cullimore from the American Hockey League's Rockford IceHogs.
Cullimore, 37, has appeared in three games for Rockford this season, collecting one assist and registering a team-best +4 plus/minus rating.
The Simcoe, Ontario, native is a veteran of 776 career National Hockey League regular-season games, racking up 77 assists, 103 points and 696 penalty minutes with the Vancouver Canucks (1994-96), Montreal Canadiens, (1996-98), Tampa Bay Lightning (1998-2004), Blackhawks (2005-07) and Florida Panthers (2007-09). Cullimore, who helped Tampa Bay capture the 2004 Stanley Cup, tallied 14 points (2G, 12A) and 117 penalty minutes during his two seasons in a Chicago uniform, which includes his last appearance with the club on April 8, 2007.
The Blackhawks will visit the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena on Friday, October 15 at 6:00 P.M. The game will be broadcast locally on Comcast SportsNet Chicago and can be heard on Chicago's WGN Radio.
