(AP) — Blackhawks goaltender Anton Forsberg has been assigned to Rockford of the American Hockey League after clearing waivers.

The Blackhawks had been playing with three goaltenders on their roster since Corey Crawford was activated Thursday. Crawford missed the first part of the season after suffering a concussion last year.

The 25-year-old Forsberg did not appear in a game while he was with Chicago. He had a .908 save percentage and a 2.97 goals-against average in 35 games with the Blackhawks last season.

Rookie forward Luke Johnson was recalled from Rockford on Tuesday to replace Forsberg on the roster.

There was a serious stabbing incident in Rockford.
(CLICK HERE FOR THOSE DETAILS)

While we were at the stabbing scene, several officers left the stabbing scene in a hurry, headed northbound on N Main.

The police detained a person at the Mobil station just North of the stabbing scene. (As you can see in the video above)

At the time of writing this, all we can confirm is several police officers have taken one person into custody at the Mobil station on  N Main, just south of the wreck-it-round-a-bout. (Just North of the stabbing scene)

We tried to talk to the officers and get information after they quickly whisked the person away in the transport van, but police refused to talk to us.
