Bryan Bickell suffered from 'ocular issue,' not vertigo

Bryan Bickell is now in Rockford trying to reignite his career, but the flame out really began last year when the forward started dealing with a health issue relating to his head.

Blackhawks Bryan Bickell clears waivers

The 29-year-old forward is likely headed to Rockford. For the second time this season, Chicago Blackhawks forward Bryan Bickell has cleared waivers, reports TSN's Bob McKenzie.
