    Per official Hawks Twitter, Fortin has been called up.
    I'm having trouble getting it from my phone app to this board.

    Wonder if one of the forwards got hurt, otherwise I can’t say I understand this. Hayden just drew in and played well and scored a goal. I’d rather have Martinsen in the press box than Fortin. Can’t see Q scratching Kunitz either.

    Johnson going down? He's better than Martinsen, but he needs to play, not be a 13th forward.

    Edit: or it's because Martinsen is injured. Didn't think of that.

    Maybe this will finally get people to cool the hype on Fortin.

    as per tracy myers twitter




    #Blackhawks[​IMG] recall Alexandre Fortin from Rockford. I'm going to assume Martinsen's back issue is going to keep him from traveling to MIN for Thursday's game.

    If it is indeed Martinsen that’s hurt, I doubt he’s even up to play.

    Will he even play? Probably just a body.

    Wasn’t that impressed with Fortin in the preseason and at the TC tourney. Speed but not a lot else. We’ll see now though during real games.

    Edit: I will say that I did like his aggressive speed and disruption on the forecheck.

    hopefully not, Fortin brings more than Kunitz, lets hope Q comes to his senses and realizes that Kunitz should have retired prior to last season when he was useless for the lightening who were a top5 team in the league.

    Yes! That said, am not expecting much. But this cup of coffee should really whet his appetite. And that's a very good thing. Hopefully, Q plays him.

    Honestly they should play him in place of Johnson.

    Finally.

    I expect that Fortin was not brought in to sit in the press box. There are a few options for Stan/Q to ponder. I'd like to see Fortin in ..... and one of Johnson, Kruger, Kunitz or Kampf sit out.

    I think you are wrong about that.

    They want to have an extra forward since Martinesen is out. I doubt he draws in. I thought Powers said as much.

    well, Fortin didn't beat out any of these guys and was sent to Rockford, now he is going to replace one of them despite not producing a point so far in Rockford?? I don't know, to me seems like a clear Martinsen for Fortin swap as a scratch...but it is Q so who the hell really knows.
