Blackhawks' Rozsival Not Injured

News: Michal Rozsival, who was scratched from Wednesday night's tilt with the Canadiens, is "fine" according to coach Joel Quenneville, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: Michal Rozsival returned from a lower body injury last Friday, so there was some concern here that Wednesday's scratch may have been injury related. Quenneville dismissed this notion after the game, however, which suggests Rozsival is just getting some rest as the Blackhawks march towards the playoffs.

News: Michal Rozsival is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Canadiens, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Michal Rozsival has recently returned from a lower body injury, but it's currently unclear whether he's a healthy scratch, or the injury has something to do with it. Look for either Sheldon Brookbank or David Rundblad to replace him in the Hawks' third defensive pairing.

Analysis: Michal Rozsival will slot back in for the first time since March 16, presumably on the third pairing alongside Nick Leddy. With Johnny Oduya (upper body) sidelined, either Sheldon Brookbank or David Rundblad will likely skate with Niklas Hjalmarsson on the second pair.

The team's next home game is April 3 against the Wild, so keep an eye out for an update on his status before then. Expect Sheldon Brookbank and David Rundblad to continue to fill in for Michal Rozsival along the Chicago blue line.

News: Michal Rozsival (lower body) will miss the next few games, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Coach Joel Quenneville wasn't worried that Michal Rozsival's injury would be a long-term concern, but he'll likely be given the next few games off to recover. The Blackhawks will use either Sheldon Brookbank or David Rundblad to fill in for him on the third defensive pairing.

Blackhawks' Rozsival: No Ice Time For Czechs

News: Michal Rozsival failed to log any ice time for the Czech Republic in Saturday's loss to Switzerland.

Hawks' Rozsival Scratched From Thursday's Lineup

News: Michal Rozsival, who was hit in the mouth on Sunday in the win over Edmonton, did not skate on Thursday in the Blackhawks' shootout win over the Coyotes, USA Today reports.
Analysis: Despite being hit in the mouth by a puck, Michal Rozsival had returned to practice during the week, but was also sporting a large face shield as he had stitches about a swollen upper lip on Wednesday at practice. The Hawks' defenseman was fortunate to not be hurt more and he is still day-to-day with back-to-back games this weekend at Nashville on Saturday and back home on Sunday against San Jose.

Hawks' Rozsival Appears Okay After Hit

News: Michal Rozsival (mouth) appears to be okay after taking a puck to the mouth Sunday in the third period of a win over Edmonton, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville told ESPN Chicago.
Analysis: Michal Rozsival had a good game before getting hit, with an assist and a plus-one rating in a little less than 14 minutes of ice time. In addition, he saved a puck from going into the net in the second period. "He's going to be OK," Quenneville said. "He took it -- I think everybody saw -- in the chops there. I think he's going to be OK, but he's got some work they're doing on them."

Hawks' Rozsival (Illness) Gets Back In The Lineup

News: Michal Rozsival (Illness) was back in the lineup on Tuesday night in the Blackhawks 3-2 shootout win over the Hurricanes, Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: The Blackhawks are trying to keep Michal Rozsival healthy so they have been sitting him down pretty much every other game. Rozsival has been on the defensive third pairing with Nick Leddy. It was a mixed bag for Rozsival who had a pair of penalty minutes including one late in the third period while registering a pair of block shots and a hit.

Rozsival Remaining With Chicago

News: Michal Rozsival re-signed with the Blackhawks on Friday, accepting a two-year contract, according to the Chicago Sun-Times' Mark Lazerus.
Analysis: This is an understated re-signing by the Blackhawks, as Michal Rozsival is an important defensive defenseman to Chicago. His impact won't show up on the scoresheet but he's a solid player.

Analysis: Michal Rozsival dealt with a lower body injury early in the season and has been a healthy scratch at times for the Blackhawks. On the season, he has totaled 11 assists in 24 games. He should be considered day-to-day with the injury.

Hawks' Rozsival Assists On Game-Winner

News: Michal Rozsival notched his third point in four games skated as he assisted on Brandon Saad's game-winning goal in the Blackhawks' 2-1 victory over the Sharks on Friday night.
Analysis: When Michal Rozsival has been in the lineup, he has contributed, but he has also been a healthy scratch and missed several games because of a lower-body injury. Rozsival has three assists in the last four games that he has been on the ice. He has five assists in seven games so far in 2013. The 34-year-old blueliner was one of the few acquisitions in the offseason for the Blackhawks and should see more ice time in the future.

Analysis: Michal Rozsival, who hadn't played since January 24, now has three points in four games out of the gate for Chicago. He's not going to keep that scoring pace up, but his return does represent a nice boost to the Hawks' blue line depth.

Blackhawks' Rozsival (Lower Body) Expected Back Soon

News: Michal Rozsival (lower body) is expected to be healthy again "soon," according to coach Joel Quenneville, the Blackhawks' official Twitter account reports.
Analysis: While Michal Rozsival won't play Wednesday, Quenneville's comments indicate Rozsival is nearing a return. The 34-year-old defenseman was able to do some individual skating Wednesday, and he looks no worse than questionable heading into Friday's tilt against Vancouver.
