Nikolai Khabibulin made the final roster for the Chicago Blackhawks after his waiver didn't produce any serious takers. Khabibulin practiced Tuesday with the team, but didn't talk to reporters after the practice.
"Nick is with us," Savard said. "It's going to be day-by-day for both goaltenders. Habby and Dale had a great talk and we're happy to have him." The Chicago Blackhawks start this season with three games in four nights, so as things stand expect Khabibulin to get at least one.
