Nick Leddy has been a fixture in the Chicago Blackhawks lineup for three seasons now, and that’s not just restricted to the regular season. He’s been a regular in playoffs, too.

However, he was not in Chicago’s lineup for Game 3 against the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday. Instead, he was a healthy scratch. Unfortunate for him on an individual level, considering he’s from the state of Minnesota. Difficulties in Chicago’s Game 2 victory over the Wild to take a 2-0 series lead ultimately landed Leddy in the press box, according to CSN Chicago.

“I’ve got all my friends and family watching so obviously that has a little bit of an effect. But there’s definitely more excitement,” Leddy said, as per CSN Chicago.

“I don’t think (Game 2) was one of my better games. I have to get better and if I am, we’ll see what happens.”

      Weren’t you complaining about this last game?

        Yep

    I’m sorry, if Bollig and Versteeg can make the roster, Leddy can.

      Agreed. I think Nordstrom has wheels, but I’d rather see Morin and Regin instead of Nordstrom and Bollig

        That Bickell-Regin-Morin line was awesome to close out the season. I don’t understand how at least Morin isn’t in the line up over Nordstrom or Bollig, considering Shaw has been injured the past 2 games.

    He’s still doing better than Cam Barker…
