Here is the weekly look at how some of the Chicago Blackhawks' prospects are performing around the globe, starting with the minor league affiliates.


The IceHogs (18-9-3-1) started the week with a 5-1 loss against the Iowa Wild on Tuesday, before dropping two games in Oklahoma City (Oilers) 3-2 in overtime and 3-1 over the weekend.

Matt Carney scored the opening goal and was assisted by Kyle Cumiskey and Mark McNeill. The Wild went to two score five unanswered goals, including three in the second period.

Teuvo Teravainen would get the IceHogs on the board on the power-play and Pierre-Cedric Labrie added another on the man advantage for a 2-1 lead, but the Barons tied it and eventually won in overtime on a power-play goal.

McNeill and T.J. Brennan assisted Teravainen's goal and Ville Pokka and Drew LeBlanc on the Labrie's.

Brandon Mashinter scored the lone goal in the 3-1 defeat. Dennis Rasmussen and Cody Bass had the helpers.
