More responsibility for Leddy


While Brent Seabrook takes time to recover from what the Chicago Blackhawks are calling a lower-body injury, fellow blueliner Nick Leddy is in for a promotion of sorts. Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune suggests Leddy is a "candidate to move up to the No. 1 defenseman pairing with Duncan Keith". Presumably this applies to even-strength play as well as with the extra skater.
