(670 The Score) The Blackhawks have activated forward Artem Anisimov and defenseman Gustav Forsling from injured reserve, they announced Tuesday morning.

Anismov suffered a concussion in a loss on Dec. 9 and went on IR a few days later. He has missed the past four games. Anisimov has 15 points (six goals, nine assists) in 31 games this season. 

Forsling had been dealing with a shoulder injury and was sidelined for the past six games. He has one goal and four assists for the Blackhawks this season, one in which he's also spent time at AHL Rockford.

Additionally, the Blackhawks loaned 19-year-old defenseman Henri Jokiharju to the Finnish men's junior ice hockey team so that he can compete in the IIHF World Junior Championship, which takes place from Dec. 26 to Jan. 5 in Vancouver.

The Blackhawks host the Predators on Tuesday night.
