De Haan (personal) is on the ice for practice Tuesday, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.
De Haan has been absent from practice since last Tuesday while tending to a family emergency, but he should still have plenty of time to get prepared for the Blackhawks' qualifying round matchup with more than a week to go before postseason play gets underway. The 29-year-old blueliner notched six points in 29 games before undergoing what was believed to be season-ending shoulder surgery in late December.
De Haan missed Tuesday's practice due to a family emergency, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.
At this point, it's unclear when de Haan might be ready to rejoin the team, but the Blackhawks certainly won't rush him back with over two weeks remaining before Game 1 against Edmonton. Another update on the 29-year-old blueliner should be released once he's able to resume practicing.
De Haan (shoulder) was with the team for Monday's training camp kick-off, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.
De Haan underwent shoulder surgery back in December, which was expected to keep him out of action through the end of the season. With the league shutdown, the blueliner was given extra time to get healthy and appears ready to go. The 28-year-old Canadian managed just six points in 29 contests this year, so fantasy players shouldn't be relying on him for much in terms of offensive contribution.
General manager Stan Bowman expects de Haan (shoulder) to be ready for the Blackhawks' pre-postseason training camp, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
De Haan underwent shoulder surgery in late December and was originally expected to miss the rest of the campaign, but the league's hiatus has evidently allowed him to progress in his recovery to the point he should be ready for Chicago's pre-playoffs training camp, which is expected to get underway July 10. His return would be huge for a Blackhawks club that gave up goals in bunches during the regular season, as he was playing well in a top-four role prior to his injury, notching six points while posting a plus-10 rating in 29 contests.
De Haan (shoulder) skated with a small group of fellow NHL players in Ottawa on Friday, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
De Haan underwent what was believed to be season-ending shoulder surgery in late December, but the fact that the Blackhawks will be playing meaningful games in August has left the door open for a potential return this year, particularly since he's already skating. However, his availability for the playoffs likely won't be determined until Chicago begins its pre-postseason training camp in mid-July. De Haan was playing well in a top-four role for the Blackhawks prior to his surgery, notching six points while registering a plus-10 rating in 29 contests.
De Haan will undergo surgery on his right shoulder and will be sidelined for the remainder of the season.
This is the second shoulder surgery that de Haan will have undergone within the last year, so this is likely an issue that will plague him for the rest of his career. The 28-year-old's absence won't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only picked up six points this year, but it will undoubtedly weaken an already shaky Blackhawks blue-line corps, as he's been one of the team's best stay-at-home defenders this season, registering a plus-10 rating through 29 games.
The Blackhawks placed de Haan (shoulder) on injured reserve Thursday.
De Haan was unavailable for the first two games of the campaign after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery, so the fact that he's once again dealing with a shoulder issue is highly disconcerting. Chicago has yet to release an expected timetable for the 28-year-old blueliner's recovery, but he should be considered out indefinitely at this point.
De Haan (shoulder) will return to Chicago for further testing after leaving Tuesday's game versus the Golden Knights, Chris Kuc of The Athletic reports.
Per Kuc, head coach Jeremy Colliton described de Haan's shoulder as "not good." The Blackhawks have two more games on their road trip, but it sounds like de Haan will be out longer than that. The blueliner previously had surgery on his right shoulder over the summer -- if he's damaged it further, an extended absence could be on the horizon. Slater Koekkoek should enter the lineup in de Haan's stead.
De Haan (shoulder) will not return to Tuesday's game versus the Golden Knights.
De Haan was hurt in the first period, as the blueliner fell after taking a hit, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports. De Haan managed a shot on goal and an assist in 7:35 before his exit. The Blackhawks will finish Tuesday's game with five defensemen. If de Haan or Olli Maatta (illness) can't go Thursday against the Coyotes, Slater Koekkoek will likely enter the lineup. Per Roumeliotis, de Haan's injury is to his right shoulder, which is the same one he needed surgery on during the offseason.
De Haan scored his first goal of the year and added four hits and three blocked shots in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Golden Knights.
De Haan scored the first of two goals in a 45-second span in the second period for the Blackhawks, turning a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 lead. The 28-year-old has points in three straight games. He's only got four points in 16 appearances overall, but de Haan has added 57 hits and 41 blocked shots as a mostly defensive-minded player.
De Haan provided an assist, three shots on goal, three hits and three blocked shots in a 5-4 win over the Maple Leafs on Sunday.
It was a strong overall game for the defenseman, who picked up his third helper in 15 appearances. De Haan also has 53 hits and 38 blocked shots in 2019-20. His career high for points is 25, set in 2016-17, but he's most likely to fall in the 10-15 point range.
De Haan (shoulder) was minus-1 with one shot on goal, three blocked shots and three hits in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to Winnipeg.
The 28-year-old defenseman missed Chicago's first two games with a shoulder injury but returned Saturday and logged 18:03 minutes of playing time, including ample minutes on the penalty kill. De Haan is a defensive-minded defenseman who has scored as many as five goals in a season only once in six NHL seasons.
De Haan (shoulder) will make his season debut Saturday against Winnipeg, Chris Kuc of The Athletic reports.
The Blackhawks will welcome de Haan into their lineup with open arms, as they've been thrashed for nine goals over their first two games of the campaign. De Haan is a well-respected, stay-at-home defender, but he won't produce much offense from the blue line, so he can be ignored in all but the deepest of fantasy formats.
De Haan (shoulder/groin) wasn't able to practice Wednesday and isn't expected to be available for Thursday's game against San Jose, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
De Haan will now have to wait for Saturday's matchup with Winnipeg for his next potential opportunity to make his Blackhawks debut. The 28-year-old blueliner hasn't tasted game action since last season, so his minutes will likely be limited upon his return.
De Haan (shoulder) is now dealing with a groin issue that kept him out of practice Monday, Chris Kuc of The Athletic reports.
The news that de Haan won't be participating in practice over the next few days certainly raises doubts regarding his availability versus San Jose on Thursday. The defender hasn't been able to shake the injury bug to start the year and may need some additional time off before making his 2019-20 debut. Slater Koekkoek figures to continue holding down a spot on the blue line in de Haan's stead.
De Haan (shoulder) won't play Friday against the Flyers, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.
De Haan, who's still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, has been practicing with his teammates for several weeks and was essentially a game-day decision for Friday's contest, so he'll almost certainly be ready to rock when the Blackhawks return home for Thursday's matchup with San Jose. For now, Dennis Gilbert will fill in on Chicago's bottom pairing.
De Haan (shoulder) practiced with his new teammates for the first time Tuesday since undergoing offseason shoulder surgery, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.
De Haan may not crack the lineup during Chicago's preseason schedule, but he appears to be on track to be available for the team's regular-season opener against the Flyers' on Oct. 4. The 28-year-old will undoubtedly improve a Blackhawks defense that gave up 3.55 goals per game last campaign, good for second worst in the NHL, but he's never been known for his offensive contributions, so he won't be a viable fantasy option in most formats in 2019-20.
De Haan (shoulder) is expected to remain sidelined for 2-to-3 more weeks.
This is actually encouraging news, as it suggests de Haan may be available for Chicago's regular-season opener against Philadelphia on Oct. 4. The 27-year-old notched one goal and 14 points in 74 games with the Hurricanes last campaign and is expected to slot into a top-four role with the Blackhawks in 2019-20.
De Haan (shoulder) was traded to Chicago from Carolina along with Aleksi Saarela in exchange for Anton Forsberg and Gustav Forsling on Monday.
Chicago has been making moves all offseason but this might be the biggest one. De Haan scored a goal and 14 points last season while averaging over 18:30 of ice time per game. He should slot into Chicago's top four on the blue line and could see some time on the power play. The 28-year-old is recovering from shoulder surgery and there's uncertainty about whether he'll suit up to start the regular season.
De Haan will be sidelined 4-6 months after having surgery on his shoulder Tuesday.
De Haan's recovery time raises doubts about his availability for Opening Night in October, but if he can stay on the short end (four months), he has a chance to be ready for the start of the 2019-20 campaign. The blueliner managed just one point in the postseason, along with 12 shots, 33 hits and 12 blocks. Even when fully fit, the Ontario native's ceiling is likely in the 20-25 point range, which gives him mid-range value at best.
