Chicago Blackhawks activate Sammy Pahlsson from injured reserve

CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks have activated newly acquired centre Sammy Pahlsson from the injured reserve list.

Chicago acquired Pahlsson from the Anaheim Ducks along with defenceman Logan Stephenson and a conditional draft pick in exchange for defenceman James Wisniewski and centre Petri Kontiola on March 4.

Pahlsson has been recovering from mononucleosis, but he's expected to make his debut with the Blackhawks in Columbus.

He had 10 assists and 15 points in 52 games for Anaheim this season. He missed 18 games after being placed on injured reserve on Feb. 2, including six games with Chicago.

Also Wednesday, Chicago reassigned left-winger Pascal Pelletier to Rockford of the AHL.
