Brandon Hagel’s time in the Swiss NLA has come to an end as NHL.com’s Brandon Cain notes that the Blackhawks have recalled the winger from HC Thurgau.  He is expected to spend the holiday season back home before making the trip to Chicago for training camp as things stand.

The 22-year-old opted to head overseas back in late September and it certainly was a good decision as he picked up eight goals and seven assists in 14 games to put him second on the team in scoring.
