- On Saturday night, the Blackhawks hosted Hockey Fights Cancer when they took on the Toronto Maple Leafs. Before the game, the team wore authentic white jerseys with lavender numbers instead of the traditional black, and they are auctioning the sweaters off. Each jersey is autographed by the player that wore it. [NHL.com]

- Dave Bolland made his return to Chicago last night as a member of the Maple Leafs, and Jay Zawaski had some thoughts on “the Rat’s” return. [Red Light District]

- Bryan Bickell finally scored his first goal of the season on Saturday night for the Hawks, and his sense of relief was palpable, as Scott Powers reports. [ESPN Chicago]

- The Blackhawks made some line changes going into Saturday’s game to try to fix up their offense, and even though they looked a lot better during the later stages of that game, they are still trying to get into a better offensive rhythm as the season wears on. [CSN Chicago]

 - Brandon Pirri has been making big strides during his call-up with the Hawks, and one of the things that he’s had to adjust to is the gritty play expected of him in his current bottom-six forward role. [Chicago Sun-Times]

- Just like Michal Rozsival, Michal Handzus returned to the Blackhawks for one simple reason this season: he wants a chance at another Stanley Cup championship. [Chicago Tribune]

- Viktor Svedberg, a hulking 6-foot-8 defenseman who appeared in six preseason games for the Blackhawks this year, has agreed to a two-year contract with the organization. He will stay with the Rockford IceHogs. [Icehogs.com]
