Dach (shoulder) is not expected to play in Chicago's last three games, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports Monday. Dach has already been on the shelf for the team's previous five outings and now is poised to miss another three. The 21-year-old natural center was able to practice with the team in a non-contact jersey Monday, so it's unlikely his injury will linger into next season. On the year, Dach set new personal bests in games (70), goals (nine) and assists (17) and will no doubt be eager to build upon that in 2022-23.
Dach (shoulder) will not travel during the upcoming three-game road trip, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports. As expected, Dach will miss at least three more games while dealing with a shoulder issue. The 21-year-old could return as early as April 25 against the Flyers but the team doesn't have a clear timeline at the moment. He's scored 26 points through 70 games this season.
Dach (shoulder) may not be able to travel with the team for its upcoming three-game road trip, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports Monday. Dach has already been ruled out versus Calgary on Monday due to his shoulder problem and could be out of action even longer. While coach Derek King still classified the Alberta native's injury as day-to-day, the fact that he may not travel with the team would seem to indicate a more serious injury. Still, with nothing to play for aside from pride the rest of the way, there is no reason for the Hawks to rush Dach back into the lineup.
Dach suffered a right shoulder sprain during Thursday's loss to San Jose, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports. The Blackhawks have yet to release an expected timetable for Dach's recovery, but it's probably safe to assume he'll be sidelined for a few contests at a minimum. With Dach on the shelf, look for Dominik Kubalik, Tyler Johnson or Henrik Borgstrom to enter the lineup Saturday against the Predators.
Dach scored a goal on four shots and added a power-play assist in Sunday's 6-4 loss the Stars. It had been nearly two months since Dach's last multi-point effort, a two-assist game versus the Jets on Feb. 14. The 21-year-old forward has seen time both down the middle and on the wing as the Blackhawks try to figure out where he best fits. Dach's got nine goals and 26 points this season, both of which are career highs. He's added 114 shots on net, 46 hits, 43 PIM and a minus-16 rating through 68 appearances.
