The Chicago Blackhawks placed forward Boris Katchouk on waivers on Monday afternoon.
Katchouk, 25, was a healthy scratch in all four games of the recent homestand. His last game was on Dec. 3, which came in a 4-1 loss to Minnesota.
Katchouk has four points (two goals, two assists) in 17 games with the Blackhawks this season. He's averaging 12:08 of ice time and has struggled to be an everyday player in the lineup.

Teams have 24 hours to put a claim in for Katchouk. If he clears — which is expected — the Blackhawks will send him to the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League, where he can get more consistent playing time.
