Blackhawks activate F Burish

Sidelined all season by a knee injury, Chicago Blackhawks

forward Adam Burish has been activated from injured reserve.

The 27-year-old Burish tore the ACL in his right knee during a

preseason game at Minnesota on Sept. 20 and underwent surgery five

days later. He had career highs with six goals and nine points in

66 games last season before collecting three goals and two assists

in the playoffs.

Burish has 10 goals and seven assists in 156 regular-season

games over the last three years with the Blackhawks.
