The Blackhawks begin their bye week Monday. They’ll be back in action Friday against the Sabres in Buffalo.

Monday also is the birthday of defenseman Carl Dahlstrom (24) and former Blackhawks forwards Dan Carcillo and Colin Fraser (both 34).

Rockford IceHogs defenseman Andrew Campbell finished second in the hardest shot event in the AHL All-Star Skills Competition, which the Western Conference won 17-14 over the East on Sunday in Springfield, Mass.

Elsewhere in Chicago sports, the Fire signed veteran goalkeeper David Ousted, and homegrown midfielder Djordje Mihailovic scored a goal in his USNMT debut and the first score of the Gregg Berhalter era in a 3-0 win over Panama.

The Bulls fell 104-101 to the Cavaliers at the United Center.
