Chicago Thinking Tougher

from the Chicago Tribune,

But as the Hawks begin a four-game trip Saturday in Phoenix, that number could rise. The Hawks are expected to recall defensemen Dustin Byfuglien and Dave Koci on Thursday.
In the case of Byfuglien, he likely will replace James Wisniewski, who will have surgery Thursday to repair his right ACL, which he injured Tuesday. Wisniewski is out for the season.
Koci, on the other hand, won’t be asked to carry the puck out of the Hawks’ zone. According to the Web site hockeyfights.com, Koci has had 85 fights in four seasons in the American Hockey League, including 20 this season through Tuesday.
