The Chicago Blackhawks recalled two forwards from Rockford and placed defenseman Mike Kostka on injured reserve on Friday.

Jeremy Morin, who scored the game-winner in Rockford’s victory over the Toronto Marlies on Wednesday night, was recalled from the IceHogs today. The Blackhawks also recalled forward Brad Mills, who they agreed to terms on a one-year deal with today.

Meanwhile, Kostka was placed on injured reserve, retroactive to Tuesday, the day he suffered a lower-body injury that will keep him out the next 4-6 weeks. Coach Joel Quenneville said Kostka “got hit” while skating with the extra players on Tuesday morning. Kostka was seen wearing a walking boot on his right foot following the Blackhawks’ 6-5 overtime loss on Thursday.

The 22-year-old Morin has eight points in eight games with the IceHogs this season.

Mills 30, has two goals and two assists in eight games with Rockford. Mills has played in 31 NHL games, all with New Jersey. He has 110 points in 293 career AHL games with Lowell, Albany and Rockford.
