The Chicago Blackhawks have recalled goaltender Antti Raanta from the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League, the team announced today.

Raanta, 24, has appeared in one preseason game with the Blackhawks, earning a 5-4 shootout win over the Washington Capitals on Sept. 20. He made 26 saves and stopped all three shootout attempts in the victory.

The Rauma, Finland, native was 21-10-11 with five shutouts, a 1.85 goals-against average and a .943 save percentage in 45 games last season with Assat Pori of SM-liiga (Finland) on the way to a championship.

Raanta was honored as the top goaltender in the league and was the Most Valuable Player of the regular season and playoffs.
