CHICAGO – The Chicago Blackhawks activated defenceman Connor Murphy off injured reserve Monday.

The Blackhawks also said forward Dylan Strome was in the concussion protocol. Strome was ruled out for practice Monday.

Defenceman Lucas Carlsson was placed on IR with a strained groin. The move was made retroactive to Friday, and Carlsson is expected to miss 10 to 14 days.

Chicago’s next game is Tuesday night at Columbus.
