After trading away two forwards on Monday the Chicago Blackhawks have called up Matthew Highmore from the Rockford IceHogs.

Highmore, 21, led Rockford with 35 points (21g, 14a) in 56 games in his first professional season. His 21 goals set a new IceHogs AHL franchise rookie record.

Highmore surpassed Tanner Kero’s previous record of 20 goals from the 2015-16 season, and is Rockford’s first skater to score more than 20 goals in his rookie season during the team’s AHL affiliation (since 2007-08).
