The Chicago Blackhawks recalled four players from Rockford of the AHL.

Forward Jeff Taffe, defensemen Jassen Cullimore and Garnet Exelby, and goaltender Hannu Toivonen will accompany the Hawks to Vancouver, where they will take on the Canucks in the quarterfinals of the Stanley Cup playoffs starting Wednesday.

These players will participate in off-day practices and be available to play if the coaching staff chooses to use them or there is an injury.
