Jamal Mayers made his season debut on Thursday.
Mayers spent Chicago's first three games in the press box. "Things change quickly in our business," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. "What (Mayers) brings to our team is valuable. Whether he's playing or not, he's going to be an important piece of our team." Mayers only logged 6:49 minutes in Chicago's 3-2 overtime win.
