The Chicago Blackhawks made a series of roster moves prior to a three-game road trip. The team recalled defenseman Jakub Galvas, forward Josiah Slavin, and goaltender Arvid Soderblom from the Rockford IceHogs.

In a corresponding move, the Blackhawks reassigned goaltender Collin Delia to the AHL club.

Despite having a week off between games due to the All-Star Break, the team is still dealing with several injuries. Jonathan Toews (concussion protocol) and Kevin Lankinen (hand) will not travel on the Blackhawks’ road trip. Riley Stillman (shoulder) and Jujhar Khaira (back) also did not practice on Tuesday.

Given these absences, here’s what the Blackhawks forward lines and defensive pairings looked like in their last practice session before heading to Edmonton:

The Hawks begin their road trip by visiting the Oilers on Wednesday to make up a postponement from Jan. 18. They then visit the Blues on Saturday before making the trek back up to Canada to face the Jets on Monday.
