The Chicago Blackhawks trimmed their roster to 24 players on Monday, assigning defensemen T.J. Brennan and Ville Pokka to the Rockford IceHogs.
Well, this looks weird.
After four seasons in a Blackhawks sweater, defenseman Nick Leddy took the ice in New York on Monday morning debuting his new look with the Islanders.
Trevor van Riemsdyk was tucked into the corner of the Johnny’s IceHouse West locker room, occupying the stall Nick Leddy had the past few seasons.
Andrew Shaw was as close to Nick Leddy as any of the Blackhawks.
