Blackhawks recall Hinostroza from IceHogs

Rockford IceHogs rookie forward Vinnie Hinostroza has found his scoring touch recently, scoring three goals and three assists for six points in three games this week.

CHICAGO — The Chicago Blackhawks have recalled forward Vinnie Hinostroza from Rockford.

Hinostroza, who is from nearby Bartlett, has six goals and eight assists in 48 games with Chicago this season. He was sent down when the Blackhawks acquired forward Tomas Jurco in a trade with Detroit on Feb. 24.

Hinostroza, a sixth-round pick in the 2012 draft, turns 23 on Monday.

The Blackhawks announced the move on Thursday.
