Corey Crawford (head) remains "status quo," according to coach Joel Quenneville.
Crawford has been sidelined since Dec. 23. The Blackhawks bench boss said it's doubtful that Crawford will be back on the ice in the next few days. It is looking more and more likely that he won't play again this season, but that shouldn't come as a surprise. Mar 7 - 11:00 AM

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville admitted that Corey Crawford (upper body) might not return this season.

Crawford hasn't been ruled out for the rest of the season, but Quenneville's tone with regards to the goaltender's outlook seems to have changed. Crawford hasn't been skating recently and with the Blackhawks essentially out of the playoff picture, it might be better just to give Crawford all the rest he needs.

Corey Crawford (upper body) wasn't on the ice Thursday.

At times it's looked like Crawford might be close to returning, but nothing is set in stone yet. As far as Crawford's timetable goes, on Thursday Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville only said that he's hopeful that he'll return at some point this season.
Feb 15 - 1:54 PM

Corey Crawford was on the ice with his Chicago teammates for the morning skate on Monday.

There is still no definitive timetable for Crawford's return, but he appears to be making progress. "As far as I'm concerned, right now, for me, we're just looking at it day to day to try to get better to put myself in a position to play, and that's all," said the Blackhawks goaltender. The Blackhawks have not internally discussed the possibility of shutting Crawford down for the rest of the season, but Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times believes that would be the right thing to do.

Corey Crawford will join his teammates during their road trip in Arizona but will not play.

Crawford is obviously nearing a return and it won't be long until we see the stud goaltender back in a Blackhawks uniform. His teammates definitely need him back as they have struggled to get consistent goaltending from the duo of Anton Forsberg and Jeff Glass. If someone dropped Crawford in your league, now would be the perfect time to scoop him back up. Coach Quenneville said we could expect Crawford back "next week or soon right after."
Feb 10 - 1:28 PM

Corey Crawford (upper body) will stay off the ice for the next couple days.

Apparently that was part of the Blackhawks' plan rather than a setback. Either way, it does highlight that he shouldn't be regarded as getting close to returning just yet. He last played on Dec. 23.
Feb 7 - 3:42 PM

Corey Crawford (upper body) skated again Monday.

However, Crawford still hasn't practiced with his teammates and he might be several days away from doing that. Coach Joel Quenneville doesn't expect Crawford's time on the shelf to last much longer after he rejoins the team.
Feb 5 - 1:48 PM

Corey Crawford had an on-ice workout today for the first time since sustaining his upper-body injury.

Crawford's last game was on Dec. 25. Head coach Joel Quenneville said his return to the ice is an encouraging development and that is he expected to skate again tomorrow. We still wouldn't expect to see Crawford back any time soon.
Feb 3 - 2:33 PM

Feb 1 - 5:26 PM

Corey Crawford (upper body) won't travel with the team, but he still could get back on the ice this week.

Jan 24 - 1:21 PM

Corey Crawford (upper body) worked out off the ice on Tuesday for a second straight day.

Corey Crawford (vertigo) could reportedly miss the rest of the season.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Crawford is dealing with vertigo-like symptoms for the second time in his career. It's an unfortunate turn of events for a Chicago team that has struggled with consistency this year. Crawford has arguably been the Blackhawks' best player this season.
