Chicago Blackhawks center Artem Anisimov was activated from injured reserve prior to Monday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Anisimov missed the past 10 games due to an upper-body injury.

The 29-year-old Anisimov recorded 13 goals -- including six game-winners -- and five assists in 36 games prior to the injury.

Anisimov matched his career-high with 22 goals last season. He also had 22 for the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2013-14.

Chicago assigned defenseman Gustav Forsling to Rockford of the American Hockey League to open up a roster spot. Forsling has three goals and 10 assists in 41 games for the Blackhawks.
