Blackhawks_Michael_Handzus_2013The revolving door that is Chicagos No. 2 center spot has opened for Brandon Pirri.

Pirri, one of the clubs brightest offensive prospects, will get a chance to play in a top-six role as the club announced the incumbent No. 2, Michal Handzus, would miss at least the next two games with an upper-body injury.

Were still looking for whos going to be that [second-line center], head coach Joel Quenneville told the Chicago Tribune. Its an opportunity for Brandon to hopefully grab that. We certainly feel he can play there. Were comfortable giving him that chance here and I think hell do fine."
