Chicago, Ill. - The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that they have reassigned goaltender Jason LaBarbera to the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League.

He has also earned a 0-1-1 record with a 1.93 goals-against average and a .953 save percentage in two appearances with the Oklahoma City Barons of the AHL.
