The Chicago Blackhawks recalled forward Ben Smith from the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL to replace Marian Hossa.

An upper body injury has sidelined Hossa for a couple of weeks.

Smith, 22, helped Boston College to the 2010 NCAA title as an alternate captain.

The Blackhawks host the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night.
