    McCabe exited the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Sunday, per Carter Baum of the Blackhawks' official site.

  • Blackhawks' Jake McCabe: Designated for COVID-19 protocols

    McCabe entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Tuesday, per Mark Lazerus of The Athletic.

  • Blackhawks' Jake McCabe: Slides assist Thursday

    McCabe logged an assist, five hits, two shots on goal and a pair of blocked shots in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Coyotes.

    McCabe saw a shot attempt deflected in by Jonathan Toews in the third period. The assist snapped a six-game point drought for McCabe. The Wisconsin native has struggled on offense this year, posting six points, 31 shots on net and a minus-14 rating in 31 contests. He's added 69 hits and 73 blocked shots, so he could have some appeal in deeper formats that reward production in the physical categories.

  • Blackhawks' Jake McCabe: Ready to rock

    McCabe (undisclosed) will return to the lineup for Thursday's matchup with the Canadiens, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    McCabe will likely return to a top-four role following his three-game absence. The 28-year-old blueliner has picked up three points through 22 contests this campaign.

  • Blackhawks' Jake McCabe: Not in lineup

    McCabe (undisclosed) is not on the ice for warmups ahead of Wednesday's game versus the Rangers, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    McCabe missed the last two games while attending to a personal matter, but he returned to the team for Tuesday's morning skate. With McCabe not expected to play, Wyatt Kalynuk will draw into the lineup, likely in a third-pairing role. It's unclear if McCabe's absence is related to an injury or not, so his status for Thursday's game versus the Canadiens is uncertain.

  • Blackhawks' Jake McCabe: Out Sunday

    McCabe (personal) won't be in the lineup for Saturday's matchup with the Rangers, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

  • Blackhawks' Jake McCabe: Fills empty cage

    McCabe scored an empty-net goal, doled out two hits and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    McCabe found the empty net from around 180 feet away to help the Blackhawks close out the Kraken. The 28-year-old blueliner has just two points through 16 games this year while filling a more defensive role. He's added 37 hits and 37 blocked shots, though he sports an ugly minus-10 rating while playing in a top-four spot.

  • Blackhawks' Jake McCabe: Sends helper in loss

    McCabe posted an assist, three hits, two blocked shots and two PIM in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Red Wings.

    McCabe helped out on Tyler Johnson's goal in the first period -- those two, along with Jonathan Toews with the primary assist -- each recorded important firsts on the play. For McCabe, it was his first point as a Blackhawk. The 28-year-old has added 11 hits, 10 blocks, six shots on net and a minus-5 rating through six contests as a top-four defenseman. He's a more defensive player by nature, with a career high of 20 points set in 2016-17 with the Sabres. He hasn't had more than 14 points in a campaign since.

  • Blackhawks' Jake McCabe: Starts on top pairing

    McCabe (knee) skated with Seth Jones on the Blackhawks' top pairing during Thursday's practice, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.

    McCabe played in just 13 games with the Sabres last season, picking up three points while posting a plus-2 rating over that span, before undergoing season-ending knee surgery, but that didn't stop Chicago from signing him to a four-year, $16 million contract this offseason. McCabe has never been a big points producer, but he's a defensively-responsible mobile defenseman that should allow the likes of Jones to open up offensively in 2021-22.

  • Blackhawks' Jake McCabe: Lands four-year deal with Chicago

    McCabe (knee) signed a four-year, $16 million contract with the Blackhawks on Wednesday, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    McCabe appeared in just 13 games with the Sabres last year before undergoing season-ending knee surgery, picking up three points, 15 shots, 22 hits and 15 blocks while averaging 19:11 of ice time per contest. If he's able to come back fully recovered, McCabe should be a solid top-four option for Chicago in 2021-22, but don't expect him to provide much offense.

  • Sabres' Jake McCabe: Will be ready for next season

    McCabe (knee) is confident he'll be ready for the 2021-22 campaign, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

    Unless the two sides can come to an agreement, McCabe is poised to hit the open market this offseason as an unrestricted free agent. With his knee injury limiting him to just 13 games this year, in which he recorded one goal and two assists, the blueliner may have to settle for a one-year "prove-it" contract.

  • Sabres' Jake McCabe: Placed on IR

    McCabe (knee) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

    This move was just a formality after McCabe suffered a season-ending knee injury Saturday against the Devils. The 27-year-old defenseman will be a free agent at the end of the season.

  • Sabres' Jake McCabe: Done for season

    McCabe will require a 6-to-8 month recovery after suffering ACL, MCL and meniscus injuries to his right knee during Saturday's win over the Devils.

    McCabe has been a consistent defenseman for the Sabres this season, and he finished with three points and 22 hits over 13 games. The 27-year-old likely will land on long-term injured reserve within the next couple of days. That move will free up $2.85 million toward the Sabres' salary cap. McCabe will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

  • Sabres' Jake McCabe: Set for more evaluation

    Coach Ralph Krueger said Sunday that McCabe will undergo an MRI on his injured leg, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    McCabe suffered the injury in Saturday's win over the Devils, but Krueger reiterated Sunday that the team is worried about the potential of serious injury. The early prognosis is that McCabe will miss time, but expect another update on the defenseman's status following the MRI and further testing. Henri Jokiharju and Brandon Davidson are candidates to enter the lineup for Monday's game against the Islanders.

  • Sabres' Jake McCabe: Potentially serious injury

    Head coach Ralph Krueger said that he's "very concerned" about the leg injury McCabe suffered during Saturday's win over the Devils, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

    Krueger is typically reluctant to expand on injuries, but he was candid about the seriousness of McCabe's injury after the blueliner collided with Devils forward Nico Hischier in the third period and left the ice in pain. The early prognosis is that McCabe will miss time. The 27-year-old will undergo further testing, and the Sabres should provide an update before Monday's road game versus the Islanders.

  • Sabres' Jake McCabe: Removed from protocols list

    McCabe has been removed from the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list and could play Tuesday against the Islanders, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.

    McCabe's availability for Tuesday night's contest will likely boil down to a game-time decision. The 27-year-old blueliner picked up three points through the first 10 games of the campaign before being sidelined for two weeks due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols.

  • Sabres' Jake McCabe: Out Monday

    McCabe is still on the COVID-19 protocol list and will not be available for Monday's game against the Islanders, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    The Sabres will be in action for the first time since Jan. 31 but McCabe will be unavailable while waiting to clear protocols. It will be the first time he's missed a game this season. Brandon Davidson will likely take his spot in the lineup Monday.
