Hjalmarsson has taken 44 hits in the Stanley Cup Western Conference Finals heading into Game 7 against the Ducks, but said that he's just fine for Saturday night, ESPN Chicago reports.

With Michal Rozsival out for the season with a fractured ankle, the Blackhawks have relied on their top four defensemen, Hjalmarsson, Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook and Johnny Oduya who have taken 86 percent of the minutes in the first six games. "They hit hard, but they hit pretty clean," Hjalmarsson said. "It's just a matter of getting back up and focusing on the next shift." The Ducks are expected to try to exploit the heavy workload in Game 7.

Hjalmarsson was credited with a secondary assist on Patrick Kane's third-period goal in Sunday's win over the Wild.

After tallying a point in each of the Blackhawks' first two games of the postseason, Hjalmarsson was held off the score sheet for five consecutive games before getting the helper in Sunday's match. The 27-year-old provided only 19 points in 82 games during the regular season, so neither the Blackhawks nor fantasy owners should view as a viable source of offense.

Hjalmarsson potted his third goal of the season and finished with a plus-3 rating in Monday's 4-1 win over the Kings.

Hjalmarsson suffered a hand injury in Friday's contest but was able to return to the ice without missing any game action, and has shown no lingering effects as the 27-year-old has recorded a point in both contests since sustaining the injury. The defenseman has just 18 points, but sports an impressive plus-24 rating on the year.
