The Chicago Blackhawks recalled defenseman Jassen Cullimore from the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL on Friday, and coach Joel Quenneville declared that Patrick Kane will miss Friday night's game in Columbus against the Blue Jackets with an illness.

Kane missed practice Thursday and did not travel to Columbus with the Hawks on Thursday.

Quenneville said Kane is hopeful for Saturday's home game against the Buffalo Sabres.

The Blackhawks now have seven defensemen on the roster, which means one of them -- likely Jordan Hendry -- will take some shifts at wing.
