Warmups: California, Here We Come

The Blackhawks are in California for a quick two game road trip starting tonight against the Los Angeles Kings. They do so without Jonathan Toews, Steve Montador or Niklas Hjalmarsson, who returned for one game, but is once again out; when any of them will return is unknown. Toews’ Tuesday car accident is unrelated to him not playing as he wasn’t injured in the minor crash.  (Chicago Sun-Times)

For the Kings tonight will mark the reunion of Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, a former infamous Flyers duo, following the trade for Carter which sent Jack Johnson and a conditional 1st round pick to the Columbus Blue Jackets. Richards and Carter will even get to play together on the same line along with Dwight King. (Los Angeles Times)

Corey Crawford will likely be in net for the Blackhawks, though not confirmed, while Jonathan Quick will be in net for the Kings. (Left Wing Lock & @curtiszupke)

In other Blackhawks news, Carter Hutton was signed to a one year contract yesterday and celebrated it with an IceHogs 3-2 win over the Chicago Wolves, including a goal from the newest IceHog, Matt Fornataro. (Blackhawks & Rockford Register Star)
