Blackwood (heel) will miss Tuesday's matchup with the Kraken, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

The team hasn't provided a specific timeline for when Blackwood might be ready to get back into the crease, so fantasy players may want to consider alternative netminding options for the time being. Once cleared to play, the Thunder Bay, Ontario native should be slotted in as the No. 1 option between the pipes, though Jonathan Bernier will certainly push him for more starts.
