In a recent flurry of moves, the Chicago Blackhawks made significant changes to their roster. Yesterday, they acquired forward Rem Pitlick through a trade, giving up a seventh-round draft pick. Additionally, they picked up forward Zach Sanford off waivers from the Arizona Coyotes.

However, as the Blackhawks geared up to face the Calgary Flames in a 3 PM Eastern game today, they encountered an unexpected challenge. Due to winter storms disrupting travel plans, the team found themselves down a forward, specifically the newly acquired Rem Pitlick.

Head coach Luke Richardson provided insight into the situation, stating, "Pitlick, unfortunately with the storms, he couldn't get in today with the flights." This unforeseen circumstance highlighted the impact that external factors, such as weather conditions, can have on the team's lineup and preparations.
