The Chicago Blackhawks placed forward Daniel Carcillo on injured reserve and recalled Ben Smith from the Rockford IceHogs on Tuesday.
Carcillo is having surgery sometime Tuesday to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee; he sustained the injury on Jan. 2. Carcillo is out for the rest of the season.
Smith has played in nine games with the Blackhawks this season, scoring two goals. He has 12 goals with the IceHogs.
