INDIANAPOLIS – The Rockford IceHogs announced Sunday that forward Mikael Hakkarainen has been reassigned by the Chicago Blackhawks to the American Hockey League's Rockford IceHogs. 


Hakkarainen, 21, played three games with the Fuel over three days, earning two goals and two assists before being reassigned to the IceHogs by the Blackhawks. The rookie forward signed a two-year NHL contract with the Chicago Blackhawks after spending three seasons in the United States Hockey League (USHL).
