Roster Moves: Blackhawks Recall Beaudin and Connolly, Assign Gabriel and Regula

Chicago Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks announced several roster moves on Wednesday morning. Chicago has recalled defenseman Nicolas Beaudin and forward Brett Connolly to the NHL Taxi Squad while assigning forward Kurtis Gabriel and defenseman Alec Regula to the Rockford IceHogs.

Beaudin has been with the IceHogs for nearly the entire season, skating in one game this year for the Blackhawks. Beaudin has played in 22 games in Rockford with six points, all assists. He has two goals and four assists in 21 career NHL games, all with the Blackhawks.

Connolly, who is still serving his four-game suspension for his hit on Tanner Kero, has skated in two games with the Blackhawks this season. He has one game left to serve of his suspension, but it won’t count with him on the Taxi Squad. This season, Connolly has 11 points in 16 AHL games with the Rockford IceHogs.

Gabriel and Regula head to the IceHogs after Gabriel skated in two games for Chicago, totaling just over 12 minutes of ice time in his pair of appearances. Regula has not played in Chicago this season but has one goal and three assists in 11 games with the IceHogs.
