Fortin (abdomen) is listed on the Blackhawks' training camp roster ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.

Fortin underwent sports hernia surgery in June, but he was always expected to be 100 percent healthy for training camp. The 20-year-old forward was a point-per-game producer in the QMJHL last season, racking up 52 points (22 goals, 30 assists) in 52 games with the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies. He'll get a chance to compete for an Opening Night roster spot with the big club in camp, but he'll likely spend the majority of the 2017-18 campaign in the AHL.
