Player News - Blackhawks

Date: Team: Pos:

Jonathan Toews just isn't improving, and is due to take a few more days off before trying to get back on to the ice.

Tough news for the Captain and the team, but at least he's not getting worse. Stay patient, Toews will return at some point.
Dec 4 - 5:17 PM

It's confirmed, Scott Darling will face Winnipeg on Sunday.

Darling will likely continue to see most, if not all, of the starts with Corey Crawford out. Darling is 4-1-1 with 18 goals against and a .907 save percentage this season.
Dec 4 - 5:09 PM

Jonathan Toews will remain on the sidelines with a back injury on Sunday against the Jets.

It's now two weeks since the Captain last played, and it doesn't appear he's close to returning unfortunately. He has four goals and 12 points through 21 games thus far.
Dec 4 - 5:07 PM

Scott Darling will probably start Sunday evening against the Jets.

It will be Darling's net until Corey Crawford returns from an emergency apendectomy. Darling is coming off a 3-1 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday and will be looking to bounce back against Winnipeg.
Dec 4 - 12:49 PM

Chicago coach Joel Quenneville told the media that he will update Jonathan Toews status at 4:00 pm on Sunday.

Toews is dealing with a back injury and was placed on injured reserve on Friday. We should find out more about his condition and timeline for a return Sunday afternoon.
Dec 4 - 12:24 PM

The Blackhawks have assigned Nick Schmaltz to Rockford of the AHL.

In 26 games this season, Schmaltz has scored one goal and registered four points. Needless to say, his comings and goings this season will have little fantasy impact.
Dec 4 - 11:52 AM

The Blackhawks have called up goalie Lars Johansson from Rockford of the AHL.

He will back up Scott Darling while Corey Crawford recovers from his emergecny appendectomy. We don't expect Johansson to play much based on his 6-7-1 record and 2.63 goals against average and .911 save percentage with the IceDogs. That said, he was terriific in 2014-15 with Frolunda of the Swedish League.
Dec 4 - 11:49 AM

Patrick Kane picked up another point during Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Flyers.

American's best player continues to rack up the points. Kane picked up his 17th helper gives him 25 points in 26 games this season. Simply remarkable.
Dec 3 - 6:43 PM

Artem Anisimov can't stay off the score sheet.

The veteran pivot picked up his 12th helper of the season during Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Flyers. He now has 22 points in 25 games thus far, showing last year was no fluke.
Dec 3 - 6:41 PM

Artemi Panarin sanpped his five-game goal drought during Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Flyers.

Panarin's tally was his ninth of the season, giving him 22 points in 26 games. His shooting percentage now sits at 13%, three points below the mark he set last year.
Dec 3 - 6:40 PM

Scott Darling just couldn't handle all the love Philadelphia wanted to give him on Saturday.

Darling made 27 of 30 stops asked of him including all five on the kill, but it wasn't enough as Chicago fell 3-1. Darling will get the majority of the starts with Corey Crawford on the shelf the next few weeks, so feel free to scoop him up.
Dec 3 - 6:34 PM

Corey Crawford will miss two-to-three weeks after undergoing an emergency appendectomy on Saturday morning.

That goodness for modern medicine. Expect Scott Darling to see the bulk of the starts with Crawford out. He should return by Christmas.
Dec 3 - 4:19 PM

With Corey Crawford in the hospital getting an emergency appendectomy, Chicago signed 23-year-old Eric Semborksi to an emergency ATO to backup Scott Darling.

The Philadelphia-area netminder played for Temple University in 2011, and has been a coach with the Ed Snider Foundation. In case you're wondering what the rules are for this sort of scenario, the NHL rule book reads as follows, "if both listed goalkeepers are incapacitated, that team shall be entitled to dress and play any available goalkeeper who is eligible."
Dec 3 - 1:24 PM

Corey Crawford is undergoing an emergency appendectomy on Saturday morning.

"We are anticipating a full recovery and return to play," team doctor Michael Terry said. "We will provide details regarding the timeline of his return after we have more information about the surgery." Well there it is. Thank goodness for modern medicine. Expect Crawford to miss at least a week, likely two but not much more than that.
Dec 3 - 1:18 PM

Per the Blackhawks' Head Team Physician Dr. Michael Terry, Corey Crawford showed signs of "acute appendicitis" on Saturday.

Well, that's no fun. If his appendix is the issue, Crawford will out of commission at least for a couple of weeks. Hopefully he will not have to have surgery. We'll keep you posted.
