Delia yielded five goals on 29 shots in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Panthers.
The Blackhawks have been consistent this year -- they've allowed five goals in each of their three games, with Delia in goal for the last two contests. The 26-year-old was once again quite leaky, and only one of the Panthers' tallies came with a man advantage. Delia isn't winning any fantasy managers over with his play. Malcolm Subban is probably due for a start Tuesday against the Panthers, but neither Chicago goalie has earned a spot in virtual lineups.
Delia will draw the road start for Sunday's matchup with the Panthers, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.
Delia was shelled in his first start of the season Friday against the Lightning, surrendering five goals on 37 shots. Although the Panthers have yet to play this season, their offense was one of the best in the league in 2019-20, ranking sixth in goals per game (3.30).
Delia surrendered five goals on 37 shots in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Lightning.
Delia held the fort well for the first period, but the Lightning poured three past him in the second and another pair in the third. The 26-year-old faced slightly more traffic than Malcolm Subban did in Wednesday's season opener, but the result was another loss for Chicago. Wins could be hard to come by for Delia this year. It's unclear which netminder will draw the start Sunday versus the Panthers, but neither will have much appeal in fantasy.
Delia will start in the road net for Friday's game against the Lightning, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Delia will get the starting nod in the second matchup of the two-game series. Last season, the California native posted a .908 save percentage and 3.61 GAA to complement a 6-4-3 record. Delia has been handed a tough task against the defending champs, who lit up creasemate Malcolm Subban for five goals on 33 shots Wednesday night.
Delia has been included in Chicago's Phase 3 training camp roster.
Delia went 16-13-1 with a .912 save percentage and 2.66 GAA in 32 games for HAL Rockford this season. Depending on what the team does with pending free agents Corey Crawford and Malcolm Subban, the 26-year-old Delia could find himself in the mix for a spot on the 23-man roster heading into 2020-21 and could even compete for regular starts. In addition to Delia, the team also added forwards Dylan Sikura, Mackenzie Entwistle, John Quenneville, Reese Johnson, Philipp Kurashev, defensemen Chad Krys and Alec Regula and netminders Kevin Lankinen and Matt Tomkins.
The Blackhawks sent Delia back to AHL Rockford on Thursday
Delia started his tenure with the Blackhawks strong, but he's really struggled in his recent run of starts, allowing three or more goals in each of his last eight outings. With Cam Ward and Corey Crawford (illness) both presumably good to go for Saturday's matchup with the Canadiens, Delia will return to the minors to fine-tune his game.
Delia replaced Corey Crawford (illness) to begin the third period Wednesday, stopping 26 of 29 shots in a 5-4 win over the Maple Leafs.
The 24-year-old entered the game with the Hawks ahead 5-1 and had to withstand a furious comeback attempt by the Leafs, who fired a full game's worth of rubber at Delia in the final 20 minutes. Chicago is off until Saturday, giving both Crawford and Cam Ward (knee) a chance to recover from their ailments, but if either veteran remains sidelined, Delia's latest NHL stint will continue.
The Blackhawks recalled Delia on an emergency basis Tuesday.
Delia's promotion indicates Corey Crawford or Cam Ward must be dealing with an injury or illness ahead of Thursday's matchup with Buffalo. If Crawford or Ward is unavailable against the Sabres, Delia will likely serve as the team's backup.
Delia was re-assigned to AHL Rockford on Monday.
This move clears the path for Corey Crawford to return, as he was activated from injured reserve in a corresponding move. Crawford was out for a while with a concussion, which gave Delia plenty of time to get his first real NHL action. It didn't go great, as the 24-year-old posted a 3.48 GAA and .909 save percentage.
Delia stopped 26 of 30 shots in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Avalanche.
Colorado's final goal was scored into an empty net. Delia continues to struggle, allowing at least three goals in seven straight starts, and the rookie's 4.39 GAA and .878 save percentage over that stretch make him an all but certain roster casualty when Corey Crawford (concussion) is finally ready to return to action.
Delia is slated to start between the pipes in Friday's matchup with the visiting Avalanche, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.
Delia will look to bounce back after a pair of lackluster performances. The California native was pulled from Monday's game against Ottawa after allowing three goals in less than eight minutes. Before that, Delia gave up six to Boston on Feb. 12. The 24-year-old will take on a Colorado offense that is averaging 3.39 goals per game on the road -- good for fifth-best in the NHL -- and is coming off a 7-1 stomping of the Jets on Wednesday.
Delia stopped seven of 10 shots in 7:55 before exiting the game in an 8-7 win over Ottawa on Monday.
The past two games have been as bad as it gets for Delia, who has seen nine of the past 47 shots he's faced find the net. He'd been playing pretty well prior to the ugly outings against Boston and Ottawa, so the talent is there, but it's probably best not to use him for the time being.
Delia will defend the cage against the Senators at home Monday, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Delia will look to bounce back from a six-goal dismantling by the Bruins his last time out Feb. 12. It was the worst outing of the youngster's NHL career, but hopefully a couple nights off will help him get back on track. The California native figures to continue to split time with Cam Ward until Corey Crawford (concussion) returns to the lineup.
Delia allowed six goals on 37 shots in Tuesday's loss to the Bruins.
Delia entered the contest on a three-game win streak with a season-long .923 save percentage. The defense faltered often in front of Delia, causing him to cough up his worst showing of the season. With Corey Crawford (concussion) returning soon and Cam Ward playing strong, Delia's days with the big club are likely numbered.
Delia will guard the cage in Tuesday's road game against the Bruins, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.
Delia was pretty sharp in his last appearance Thursday against the Canucks, stopping 40 of 43 shots en route to a 4-3 overtime victory. The rookie backstop will look to keep rolling and pick up a fourth straight win in a road matchup with a Boston team that just lost its leading scorer, David Pastrnak, for a minimum of two weeks due to a thumb injury.
Delia agreed to terms on a three-year, $3 million contract extension with Chicago on Monday.
Delia has filled in admirably for the injured Corey Crawford (concussion), as he is 6-2-3 with a 2.98 GAA while splitting time with Cam Ward. The 24-year-old Delia likely got a few extra years of term on his deal in order to be compliant with an expansion draft for Seattle -- though the California native could take over the No. 1 gig before said draft would occur. For now, he figures to continue rotating with Ward until Crawford is given the all-clear.
Delia made 40 saves in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win against the Canucks.
Delia is 3-0-0 in his last three starts, but his numbers have been rather ordinary. The Blackhawks netminder has a 3.58 GAA and .903 save percentage in his last three appearances but has been helped out significantly by Chicago's scoring prowess. With the Red Wings coming to town Sunday, the Blackhawks have yet to announce who their starting goaltender will be for that contest.
Delia will get the starting nod for Thursday's home tilt versus Vancouver, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.
Delia seems to have recovered from a six-game losing streak with wins in back-to-back outings. The 24-year-old figures to continue splitting time in the crease with Cam Ward until Corey Crawford (concussion) is available to return -- assuming the veteran netminder isn't out for the rest of the year.
Delia saved 28 of 31 shots in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win against the Wild.
Delia improves to 5-2-3 alongside a .922 save percentage. In his last eight outings, he's allowed at least three goals seven times. Prior to that stretch, he had a 1.98 GAA and .952 save percentage in four starts. The 24-year-old should continue getting the bulk of the workload until Corey Crawford (concussion) returns.
Delia will guard the cage in Saturday's road game against the Wild, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Delia struggled in his last start Jan. 20 against the Capitals, surrendering five goals on 39 shots, but he was ultimately able to pick up his fourth victory of the season thanks to fantastic goal support from his teammates. The 24-year-old netminder will look to keep rolling and secure a second straight win in a road matchup with a Minnesota team that's averaging 2.96 goals per game at home this campaign, 23rd in the NHL.
