Blackhawks reassign Mills to AHL

The Chicago Blackhawks reassigned forward Brad Mills to the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL on Friday.

Mills hadn’t played for the Blackhawks since Oct. 29 due to a lower-body injury. He appeared in three games for the Blackhawks after being recalled from the IceHogs on Oct. 25.

The Blackhawks reassigned three players in the past two days after trading for Kris Versteeg on Thursday. They also reassigned Alex Broadhurst and Jeremy Morin to the IceHogs on Thursday.
