Cousins dealt on waiver wire.

Cousins dealt on waiver wire.

Tough day for the family…



On Tuesday, Chicago Blackhawks center Luke Philp and New York Rangers forward Tyler Pitlick were placed on waivers, only to clear on Wednesday at the 2ETpm deadline.

The latter also saw his cousin, Rem Pitlick, get placed on the waiver wire by the Blackhawks, for the purpose of assignment to AHL Rockford.

Rem Pitlick has played in just one of the Blackhawks’ last five contests and saw just 9:24 of ice time in that lone appearance. He has appeared in nine games with Chicago with zero points.

There is a sense that the move involving Pitlick could be an indication that one of the team’s injured forwards is ready to come off injured reserve. Fans are hoping this means Anthony Beauvillier, who’s been sidelined with a wrist injury, is close to a return. He has been practicing with the team lately.

On January 6th, Rem Pitlick was acquired by the Blackhawks from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a 2026 conditional seventh-round pick. He is in the second season of a two-year, $2.2 million contract with an AAV of $1.1 million.
In a total of 132 career NHL games, he has put up 21 goals with 54 points split between the Nashville Predators, Minnesota Wild, Canadiens and Blackhawks.

As for his cousin in New York, he has posted just a goal and three assists in 34 contests this season. He is currently on a one-year, $787,500 contract in the Big Apple.

Tyler Pitlick has played in a total of 420 career NHL games, scoring 56 goals with 109 points split between the Edmonton Oilers, Dallas Stars, Philadelphia Flyers, Arizona Coyotes, Calgary Flames, Canadiens, St. Louis Blues and Rangers.

He will be reassigned to the Hartford Wolf Pack.
