Carcillo out for the season

The Chicago Blackhawks announced the inevitable on Friday as winger Dan Carcillo is done for the 2011-12 season due to an ACL injury.

The 26-year-old was suspended for seven games for the hit on Edmonton Oilers defenseman Tom Gilbert, which resulted in his injury. He now faces a six-month recovery and his contract is up by the end of the season.

Although the agitator was suspended 11 games in total during his stint with Hawks, ESPN Chicago reports that coach Joel Quenneville admitted to be satisfied with the forward's style of play.

"I thought he had a good year for us," Quenneville told ESPN. "I thought he did a lot of good things. Gave us a presence, fulfilled a need or a niche for us. He provided some emotion, some toughness. We liked how he played offensively, he complimented some nice players. He did what he had to do."

However, Quenneville's positive assessment may not been enough for Carcillo to be re-signed by the club and prolong his short career as a Hawk.

In 28 games this season, Carcillo recorded two goals and nine assists for 11 points, and 82 penalty minutes.
