The Blackhawks’ first big chance to clinch a playoff berth came on Thursday night and they didn’t waste any time doing just that.
It wasn't long ago that Teuvo Teravainen was sent back down the the AHL's Rockford IceHogs when the Blackhawks didn't have an open spot for him among the team's top-nine forwards.
Another year, another playoff berth clinched.
The Blackhawks announced Thursday that the team agreed to terms with forward Tanner Kero on a two-year deal. He'll report to the AHL's Rockford IceHogs.
