Michal Rozsival joined the Blackhawks morning skate Saturday for the first time since having surgery on his broken left ankle he suffered during the playoffs. Rozsival’s recovery isn’t complete yet. He was placed on long-term injured reserve on Oct. 6, so he can’t play again for 24 days and 10 games from that date.
