Blackhawks assign Montador to AHL

CHICAGO – The Chicago Blackhawks have assigned defenseman Steve Montador to the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League and recalled forward Jimmy Hayes.

The Hawks announced the moves Tuesday.

Montador was placed on waivers Monday and cleared them, meaning the team retained his rights.

He has appeared in only one game since he suffered a concussion in February 2012 and that was in March.

He has not played this season.

Hayes has 22 goals and 17 assists for Rockford.
