Phillip Danault underwent hip surgery on Monday morning.

He is expected to miss at least three months, but Chicago hasn't announced the procedure yet. Danault notched 13 goals and 25 assists in 70 games with AHL Rockford last season and he made two appearances in the NHL with the Blackhawks. He was the 26th overall pick in the 2011 draft, but probably would've started the 2015-16 campaign in the minors.

Hawks' coach Joel Quenneville was impressed with Phillip Danault in his NHL debut.

Danault played just over 11 minutes in Saturday's game against Edmonton. "Excellent," Quenneville said about Danult's play. "I thought he did a good job. Had the puck a lot. He was around it. Tenacious. Did a real good job." The 21-year-old was the Hawks' first round pick in 2011. He doesn't have any immediate fantasy value.

Phillip Danault has been called up by the Chicago Blackhawks.

Danault has three goals and 10 points in 14 AHL games in 2014-15. The 21-year-old was taken with the 26th pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, but based on a report over the summer, the Blackhawks are looking at him as a future bottom-six forward.

Phillip Danault has been asked to model his game after Marcus Kruger.

In other words, the Blackhawks see Danault as a future third or fourth liner. "Not everyone can be the goal scorer," said AHL Rockford IceHogs coach Ted Dent. "He was a big scorer in juniors. But the way he plays in the AHL, it was more of a third or fourth-line center, more of a shutdown center. It took some time for him to adapt to that, play in that role and not be relied upon for offense. He'll try to fine-tune his game to be the best defensive forward he could be." Danault had six goals and 26 points in 72 AHL games in 2013-14.

The Canadian squad is stacked at center for the upcoming World Hockey Junior Championships.

Canada will have Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Ryan Strome, Boone Jenner, Phillip Danault and Nathan MacKinnon down the middle for the tourney that starts later this month. There is no country that can match the Canadians at the key pivot position and it is one of the many reasons Canada is favored to win gold.
