The Blackhawks assigned forward Jimmy Hayes to the Rockford Ice Hogs on Saturday afternoon.

Hayes has four goals, seven points and six penalty minutes in 13 games with the Blackhawks this season. His first NHL goal came Jan. 2 against the Edmonton Oilers. The move could be to clear a roster spot for center Brendan Morrison, who the Blackhawks acquired from the Calgary Flames on Friday.
