van Riemsdyk (arm) will return to the Blackhawks’ lineup on Saturday.
van Riemsdyk has been out since October 21st and has only appeared in two games this season. TVR has 15 points (3G / 12A) in 102 career NHL games and is expected to replace Michal Rozsival in the lineup vs. Philadelphia.
van Riemsdyk left Friday’s game with an upper-body injury and did not return; doubtful for Saturday.
van Riemsdyk was set to face-off against his brother James tonight vs. the Maple Leafs, but he was spotted wearing a sling this morning after leaving last night’s game. Sporting a sling usually suggests a fairly serious injury and it will almost certainly keep him out of tonight’s contest.
The Blackhawks have reassigned Trevor van Riemsdyk to Rockford (AHL).
van Riemsdyk has been out since November 16th, but has been practicing as of late and his return to the AHL means that he is ready to return to game action. He will likely stay with Rockford until he is back up to game-speed and then should switch spots with Kyle Cumiskey.
van Riemsdyk (knee) joined his teammates for Friday's morning skate.
van Riemsdyk, who has been sidelined with a left patella fracture since November 16th, had been limited to skating on his own, but joined his teammates for the first time this morning. The 23-year-old is just over three months into a 3-4 month timetable, so it appears as if he is progressing well.
van Riemsdyk will miss 3-4 months with a left patella fracture.
van Riemsdyk will have surgery on Thursday to repair the fractured knee cap that he suffered on Sunday vs. Dallas. This is a tough break for the young defensemen who had a nice start to his NHL career. He will be back in mid-February, early March.
Trevor van Riemsdyk will make his NHL debut tonight.
van Riemsdyk, 23, is the brother of Maple Leafs forward James van Riemsdyk. Trevor will make his debut tonight with Niklas Hjalmarsson as his D partner. He spent the last three years at the University of New Hampshire and posted four goals and 19 assists (23 points) in 26 games last season.
