Duncan Keith still feels that he has "a lot left in the tank" and he will look to bounce back in 2018-19.

"Obviously it wasn't the year that I expected. It was frustrating in a lot of ways," said Keith of the 2017-18 campaign. "It just seemed like there's a lot that went wrong. When you're a successful team, everything seems easier. Little plays, you know our habits — we've got to get back to that." Keith, who will turn 35 this summer, struggled defensively and offensively. He scored only two goals in 82 games on 187 shots and he finished with a minus-29 rating. Keith intends to train hard over the summer and come back renewed for the 2018-19 season.

Brandon Saad has plenty of bounce-back potential for next year.

"When he was on the ice, our team had a lot of chances," GM Stan Bowman said. "His conversion rate was just really low this year. We look at that as more of an anomaly. We think he's going to get back to his normal production." The Blackhawks controlled 56.04 percent of the shot attempts when Saad was on the ice during 5-on-5 situations. Saad's shooting percentage at 5-on-5 dropped to 6.68 after he had an average of 8.93 going into the season. He picked up 18 goals and 35 points in 82 contests. Saad is confident he can get back on track.

Marian Hossa's status is the same after he missed the entire 2017-18 season because of a skin disorder.

"What I do know is that his status is unchanged, so at this point there's no indication he's going to play next year, either," GM Stan Bowman said. "We'll probably have more discussions on that in the coming weeks, but his medical condition is unchanged." Hossa still has another three years remaining on his contract with a $5.275 million cap hit.

Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman expects Corey Crawford to bounce back in 2018-19.

"We have expectations that he's going to be the same goalie he's been," Bowman said. "I don't think there's any reason to doubt that. He's got a lot of confidence. The last couple of seasons, he's played a bigger role on our team, and we're looking for that next year. We're hopeful that's the case." Crawford sat out the last 47 games of the season with a head injury, but Chicago expects him to return to form.

Jeff Glass allowed four goals on 39 shots in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

It's been a disastrous season for the 'Hawks, as they'll miss the playoffs for the first time in over a decade. Glass will end the year with riding a miserable eight-game losing streak. The 32-year-old will finish the season with a 3-7-3 record. Don't expect him to be in the NHL next season. He shouldn't pop up on your fantasy radar next year.

Brent Seabrook scored a goal in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

Seabrook snapped Connor Hellebuyck's shutout at the 9:08 mark of the second frame, but the 'Hawks found themselves down 4-1 at the time. The veteran finished the night with a minus-1 rating, two shots on goal and five blocked shots in 21:47 of ice time. The 32-year-old has seven goals and 26 points in 81 games this season. The 'Hawks will likely do their best to move Seabrook this offseason, but his massive contract is probably unmovable.
Apr 7 - 10:13 PM

Jordan Oesterle will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Oesterle has five goals and 10 assists in 54 games this season. This is the second time in three games that he'll watch from the press box.
Apr 7 - 7:00 PM

Jonathan Toews (upper body) didn't make the trip to Winnipeg for tonight's game.

The only change to the lineup from last night's loss will be a goaltending swap for the Blackhawks. Toews will end this season with 20 goals and 52 points in 74 games. He has now failed to eclipse 58 points in three-straight seasons.
