Gustav Forsling is back in the NHL with the Chicago Blackhawks.

The 20-year-old defenseman originally made the big club out of training camp but was then sent to Rockford in the AHL earlier this month. He was recalled on Sunday. In a corresponding move, Chicago placed forward Michal Rozsival on injured reserve retroactive to Jan. 25.

Per the Chicago Sun-Times, the injury to Rozsival occurred during practice.

In 14 games this season, the 38-year-old Rozsival has just one assist.

Forsling, originally a draft pick of the Vancouver Canucks before he was dealt to Chicago, has played 32 games for the Blackhawks this season.

After making a strong impression on the coaching staff during training camp, he went on to score one goal and four points with the Blackhawks before being sent down.

The Blackhawks are four points back of Minnesota for the Central Division lead. They visit the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday.
