Kruger, Montador on IR, Olsen recalled

Blackhawks

The Blackhawks are dealing with the injury bug a bit, so they made a few moves on Wednesday morning.

Defenseman Dylan Olsen was called up to the Blackhawks and defenseman Steve Montador and forward Marcus Kruger were placed on injured reserve as the Blackhawks prepared for their game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night. The Blackhawks also added forward Andrew Shaw, who agreed to terms to a three-year deal on Tuesday, to the active roster.

Kruger seemed to be on the right track recently, after getting a concussion before Christmas and suffering one again vs. the Columbus Blue Jackets. But coach Joel Quenneville said that the center "had a tough day" on Tuesday, apparently suffering a setback. Montador missed Monday's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

The 21-year-old Olsen has a goal and an assist in 30 games this season for Rockford. Olsen was injured through a good part of the Blackhawks' training camp in the fall.
