Morin, Pirri among six recalled by Hawks

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks recalled forwards Jeremy Morin and Brandon Pirri, defensemen Joe Lavin and Ryan Stanton, and goaltender Carter Hutton from the American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs and forward Brandon Saad from the Ontario Hockey League’s Saginaw Spirit, the team announced on Monday.

Morin, Pirri, Hutton and Saad all spent time with the Hawks this season. Morin appeared in two games as did Saad. Pirri played in five games, registering two assists. Hutton dressed as a backup for two Blackhawks games this season but never saw time.

Saad was a second-round draft pick in 2011 and was sent back to his junior’s team after the first two games of the season. He led the OHL with 1.73 points per game played.

Lavin and Stanton have never appeared in an NHL game.
