BREAKING: Defensive Pairings Adjustment

Surprising changes made to the defensive groups

The Chicago Blackhawks face off against the Columbus Blue Jackets this Friday, in anticipation of this match some interesting changes to the defensive pairings have been made during today's practice.

Duncan Keith and Niklas Hjalmarsson are starting on the first line as usual and we have Michal Kempny and Brent Seabrook on the second line as well.

Gustav Forsling and Brian Campbell have been split as Forsling is paired up with Trevor van Riemsdyk and Campbell is set to hit the ice along side Michal Rozsíval.

This is an interesting development for the defensive lines as the last two lines mix things up a bit, perhaps allowing TVR to show his worth to the team or perhaps to appeal to another team for a trade.
