Niklas Hjalmarsson has been suspended for the remainder of preseason play and for the home opener against St. Louis for his hit the other night on St. Louis’s Ty Rattie. Hammer hit Rattie high, shoulder to head, which was immediately followed by a scuffle with the Blues’ line. The NHL ruled that the hit on Rattie was illegal and handed down the suspension. The Hawks would go on to win that game against the Blues 4-0. The Hawks played in Detroit on Sunday and it wasn’t a particularly spectacular night in net for Chicago as Nalimov and Johansson split...Read More

Bulls' Preseason Starts with an L as Valentine Injures Ankle in 93-91 Loss to Milwaukee Dellavedovas'
The Bulls started out hot and led 14-3 early in the first, but once the trio of Butler, Wade and Rondo came off the court, the reserves couldn’t maintain the lead. Turnovers were a common occurrence, as the Bulls coughed the ball up more than 20 times. It’s understandable, considering it’s game 1 of the preseason, but Hoiberg will have to address this with the second unit as the preseason progresses. Chicago did make a valiant 4th quarter comeback, but it wasn’t enough to leave the UC with a victory tonight, as Cristiano Felicio missed a pair of free throws that...Read More
