Top Blackhawks News

  • Blackhawks' Jarred Tinordi: Could return Tuesday

  • Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews: Expected to play Friday

    Toews (illness) was back at practice Thursday and is expected to play Friday against the Jets, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Toews missed his first game of the season Tuesday against the Devils. He has eight goals and 14 points in 24 games this season, with four goals and six points coming with the man advantage.

  • Blackhawks' Sam Lafferty: Could play Friday

    Lafferty (back) could return to the lineup as early as Friday, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Lafferty has missed the last six games and says he is feeling normal once again. Coach Luke Richardson stated that Lafferty will likely play against the Jets, should he get through practice Friday. Lafferty has three goals and seven points in 19 games this season.

  • Blackhawks' Lukas Reichel: Sent back down

    Reichel was reassigned to AHL Rockford on Wednesday.

    Reichel's demotion is likely an indication that Jonathan Toews (illness) will be ready to go for Friday's matchup with Winnipeg. In the minors, the 20-year-old Reichel has been lighting it up with 10 goals and 13 assists in 19 contests. He should remain atop the list of potential call-ups throughout the rest of the season when needed.

  • Blackhawks' Arvid Soderblom: Allows three goals in loss

    Soderblom saved 26 of 29 shots in Chicago's 3-0 loss to New Jersey on Tuesday.

    Soderblom dropped to 0-5-1 over his last seven games, which brings the 23-year-old down to 2-7-2 with a 3.19 GAA and .906 save percentage in 12 contests this season. He's likely to get the balk of Chicago's starts as long as Petr Mrazek (groin) and Alex Stalock (concussion) are unavailable. Soderblom isn't expected to do well as the starter though, especially given how badly the Blackhawks have played in 2022-23.

  • Blackhawks' Patrick Kane: Registers seven shots, no goals

    Kane fired seven shots in Chicago's 3-0 loss to New Jersey on Tuesday.

    Kane has four goals on 82 shots this season, giving him just a 4.9 shooting percentage, which is down from 9.1 in 2021-22 and his career average of 11.5. Eventually Kane's efforts should lead to him tallying goals at a faster rate. The 34-year-old also has 16 assists, 20 points and a minus-14 rating in 24 contests in 2022-23.

  • Blackhawks' Sam Lafferty: Remains sidelined

    Lafferty (back) won't play Tuesday versus New Jersey, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Lafferty has been out since Nov. 23. He has produced three goals, seven points, 26 shots on net and 26 hits in 19 contests this campaign.

  • Blackhawks' Lukas Reichel: Joining big club

    Reichel was promoted from AHL Rockford on Tuesday, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Reichel will draw into the lineup with Jonathan Toews (illness) out of action Tuesday. Through 19 games, Reichel has 10 goals and 13 assists at the AHL level. He'll likely see a middle-six role during his stint with the Blackhawks.

  • Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews: Not playing Tuesday

    Toews (illness) won't play Tuesday versus the Devils, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Toews was initially a game-time decision, but he was ruled out prior to warmups. Lukas Reichel was recalled from AHL Rockford to take Toews' place in the lineup, though the exact forward combinations likely won't be known until the game starts.

  • Blackhawks' Petr Mrazek: Goes on injured reserve

    Mrazek (groin) was moved to injured reserve Tuesday, per the NHL media site.

    Mrazek was slated to be unavailable for at least one week after he suffered another groin injury Saturday versus the Rangers. He has been limited to nine appearances this season.

  • Blackhawks' Arvid Soderblom: Starting second straight

    Soderblom will patrol the road crease during Tuesday's game versus the Devils, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Soderblom played pretty well in his last appearance Sunday against the Islanders, turning aside 37 of 40 shots, but he still came away with a loss due to a complete lack of goal support from his teammates. He'll try to snap his personal five-game losing streak in a tough road matchup with a red-hot New Jersey team that's 9-3-1 at home this year.

  • Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews: Under the weather

    Per Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times, Toews missed Tuesday's morning skate with an illness, leaving his status for the evening's matchup with the Devils up in the air.

    Toews' status against New Jersey may boil down to a game-time decision. If Toews is unable to go, the Blackhawks may have to roll with 11 forwards and seven defensemen against the Devils.

  • Blackhawks' Arvid Soderblom: No help in shutout loss

    Soderblom allowed three goals on 40 shots in Sunday's 3-0 loss to the Islanders.

    The three goals were scored in a span of 6:16 during the second period, and the Blackhawks' offense failed to give Soderblom any support. With Petr Mrazek (groin) out for at least a week, Soderblom will be the main main in Chicago's crease. Soderblom has gone 2-6-2 with a 3.21 GAA and a .906 save percentage in 11 outings. The Blackhawks have only two games this week, as they wrap up a road trip in New Jersey on Tuesday and then host Winnipeg on Friday. With the light schedule and tough opponents, Soderblom can probably be left on the waiver wire in most formats.

  • Blackhawks' Petr Mrazek: Out for at least one week

    Mrazek (groin) will be out of action for at least one week, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Mrazek was injured in Saturday's win over the Rangers. In nine appearances this year, he has a 2-5-1 record with a 4.05 GAA and an .884 save percentage. Arvid Soderblom will start Sunday versus the Islanders, and Chicago has recalled Jaxson Stauber to serve as the backup goalie.

  • Blackhawks' Arvid Soderblom: Starting against Islanders

    Soderblom will start Sunday's road game against the Islanders, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Soderblom made five saves on six shots in relief in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Rangers after Petr Mrazek left the game with a groin injury. The former has a 2-5-2 record this season with a 3.23 GAA and a .904 save percentage in 10 appearances. Soderblom should see an increase in playing time with Mrazek projected to miss at least a week.

  • Blackhawks' Jaxson Stauber: Brought up from AHL

    Stauber was called up from AHL Rockford on Sunday, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.

    The move comes after Petr Mrazek (groin) was injured in Saturday's contest against the Rangers. Stauber has a 3-2-0 record with a 3.34 GAA and an .892 save percentage in six AHL appearances this season. He will probably serve as the backup goalie for Sunday's game against the Islanders behind Arvid Soderblom.
