CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Michal Rozsival is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said on Tuesday.

"Rozy's doing all right," Quenneville said after Tuesday's practice at Johnny's IceHouse West. "We expect him on the ice (Wednesday against the Wild), so he's all right."

Rozsival was scratched from the Blackhawks' last two games on Saturday and Sunday. He last played Thursday against the St. Louis Blues and saw 13:01 of ice time.

Rozsival has two assists and a plus/minus of plus-2, and he has averaged 14:33 of ice time in three games this season.

Rozsival signed as a free agent with the Blackhawks on Sept. 11. A veteran of 759 NHL games, Rozsival played with the Phoenix Coyotes in 2011-12 and has also previously played for the New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins.
