The Blackhawks Make A Major Lineup Change

Published February 14, 2024 at 2:59

The Chicago Blackhawks have changed their lineup as one forward has been activated off the injury list.

Luke Philp, who underwent Achilles surgery in August, missed training camp this season.

He has now been activated off of injured reserve and has been waived for re-assignment to AHL Rockford.

Philp is a top-six forward in Rockford and a consistent performer in the AHL.


Philp played 60 games with the Rockford IceHogs last season, where he scored 29 goals and 24 assists, accumulating a total of 53 points

As the Blackhawks are struggling with numerous injuries, Philp may get another opportunity to play in the NHL before the end of the 2023-2024 season.

Only recently did the Blackhawks get Tyler Johnson back from the injured reserve.

His last appearance in Chicago during the 2022-2023 season saw him tally an assist in three games, with an average of 11 minutes and 41 seconds of ice time.

He made two appearances in January and one in March.

Philp's contract is due to expire at the end of the season, and he was signed to a one-year, two-way contract with an average annual value of $425K.
