Brett Seney recalled to the NHL by the Chicago Blackhawks
Former Merrimack forward Brett Seney was recalled by the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday.
Seney, 27, had been with Chicago's AHL affiliate in Rockford. In 29 games this season, he has 21 points (8g-13a).
Seney has been a consistent scorer at the AHL level. Last season for Rockford, he had 54 points (23g-31a) in 59 games.
The Blackhawks have been dealing with a run of injuries that necessitated Seney's callup.
"(Lukas) Reichel and Seney will be in there, and they'll move up the lineup," said Chicago coach Luke Richardson. "Both of them will play 5-on-5 and on the power play. That gives them more of an opportunity."
Seney will become the second Merrimack alum to play in the NHL this season. Johnathan Kovacevic has been a regular for the Montreal Canadiens on the blue line. Declan Carlile, Zach Uens, and Collin Delia are also under NHL contracts.
