The Chicago Blackhawks have been selected as the hosts of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

This will mark the first time that Chicago has hosted the event. "Anytime an NHL event is held in an Original Six city it adds to it the historical element of the NHL and with Chicago hosting the 2017 Draft, their storied history at the Chicago Stadium and their success at the United Center will bring home to all NHL fans and future players the rich traditions that come with playing in the National Hockey League," said Director of NHL Central Scouting Dan Marr. Buffalo is the host city for the 2016 draft.

As expected, Artemi Panarin (illness) will miss Thursday's contest.

Panarin wasn't able to play on Tuesday either and hasn't been able to skate recently. It sounds like this is a bit more serious than your typical flu, but the hope is that this doesn't prove to be a long-term issue.
Feb 11 - 12:36 PM

Look for Corey Crawford to start Thursday night.

Crawford was the first goalie off the ice following the morning skate, which is usually a good indicator of who the starter will be. He has a 2.10 GAA and .931 save percentage in 46 contests in 2015-16.

Artemi Panarin (illness) isn't participating in Thursday's morning skate.

Panarin missed Tuesday's contest due to the disease. Given that he's not skating, we're obviously not optimistic about his chances of returning for Thursday's game.

Chicago coach Joel Quenneville exited his post-game press conference Tuesday night after one question.

He was still steamed over a disallowed goal in a 2-0 loss to San Jose. Goaltender interference was ruled on Dennis Rasmussen after a coach's challenge, so a goal by Brandon Mashinter was taken off the board. The Blackhawks have had two goals called back in three games.
Feb 10 - 11:42 AM

Corey Crawford allowed one goal on 26 shots in Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the Sharks.

San Jose's second goal was scored into an empty net. The loss means that the 31-year-old's personal three-game winning streak comes to an end. Crawford has a 31-13-2 record with a 2.10 goals-against-average and a .931 save percentage this season.
Feb 10 - 12:20 AM

Marian Hossa had five shots on goal in Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the San Jose Sharks.

Not one member of the Blackhawks was able to figure out Martin Jones tonight. Hossa finished the game with a minus-1 rating and two takeaways in over 18 minutes of ice time. He has 10 goals and 28 points in 52 games this season.
Feb 10 - 12:12 AM

Jiri Sekac will tag in for the sick Artemi Panarin in Tuesday's match with San Jose.

Sekac has seen just two games with the Blackhawks since being picked up, and has just 26 points in 93 career games split between Chicago, Anaheim and Montreal. So we wouldn't rush to grab him.
Feb 9 - 8:05 PM

Artemi Panarin will miss Tuesday's match with San Jose, and Jiri Sekac will play in his place.

The likely Rookie of the Year Panarin has posted 52 points in 58 games this season, so it'll be interesting to see how the Blackhawks play in his absence tonight.
Feb 9 - 8:03 PM

Corey Crawford will face San Jose on Tuesday night.

Crawford has been excellent season, we know you know this. But did you know he's only lost once to a Pacific division opponent this season? That's right he's 11-1-0 with just 28 goals against and a .927 save percentage thus far.
Feb 9 - 7:24 PM

If Artermi Panarin can't play Tuesday night then Teuvo Teravainen or Richard Panik could take his place alongside Patrick Kane and Artem Anisimov.

Panarin is questionable to play against the San Jose Sharks because of an illness. He will be a game-time decision. If Panarin does play then Teravainen will remain on the third line and Panik will skate on the fourth unit.

Artemi Panarin (illness) will be a game-time decision Tuesday night.

He didn't participate in the morning skate because he was sick. Panarin's status will be determined by the pregame warm-ups.
Feb 9 - 12:38 PM

Artem Anisimov is just four goals away from matching his previous career high.

He netted 22 goals in 2013-14 with Columbus and he has 18 markers in 55 games with Chicago this season. Anisimov has fit in nicely on the Blackhawks' second line this season, while contributing points while shorthanded and on the power play.
Feb 8 - 11:44 AM

The Chicago Blackhawks have assigned Viktor Svedberg back to the minors.

The 24-year-old has been a healthy scratch in back-to-back games prior to the demotion. He has one goal and three points in 16 games this season.
Feb 7 - 11:08 AM

Artemi Panarin picked up two assists in Saturday's 5-1 win over Dallas.

Panarin assisted on Trevor van Riemsdyk's first period goal and Patrick Kane's second period goal. The 24-year-old is putting together an impressive first season in the NHL. He has 18 goals and 52 points in 56 contests in '15-16.
