?Notes on the Chicago Blackhawks; 

-Tyler Motte has been a standout in the preseason so far for the Blackhawks and he could end up with a roster spot by the time regular season starts. The Chicago-Sun Times has more on the standout prospect. 

-Defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson is expected to have a hearing with the NHL's safety committee after his high hit on Blues forward Ty Rattie. Whether he faces suspension or not is still a question, but it can't be ruled out. 

-It sounds like the Blackhawks are going to split up Patrick Kane and Artemi Panarin to start the preseason to see how the change works. Could it benefit the two? We will find out soon.
