Updated 12/7/2017 7:44 PM

The Blackhawks placed little-used center Tanner Kero on waivers Thursday. If he clears, Kero will likely be assigned to Rockford and Vinnie Hinostroza could get called up to the Hawks.

Hinostroza leads the IceHogs with 22 points and is second on the team with 9 goals. He scored six times in 49 games with the Hawks last season.

Kero, meanwhile, has been a healthy scratch in 18 of the last 20 games. He had 6 goals in 47 games with the Hawks last season.
