Per coach Jeremy Colliton, Boqvist (COVID-19 protocols) will be sidelined for at least two weeks, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.
With Boqvist out long term, rookie blueliner Ian Mitchell should see an uptick in ice time for the foreseeable future, particularly on the power play. Boqvist, who's picked up three helpers through six games this campaign, will return to a top-four role whenever he's cleared to play.
Boqvist was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Monday.
Boqvist will be unable to travel or practice until he's cleared, so this almost certainly rules him out for both Tuesday and Wednesday in Nashville. The 20-year-old blueliner has three assists in six games this season. Nicolas Beaudin or Lucas Carlsson could replace Boqvist assuming he does miss some time.
Boqvist notched an assist in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Lightning.
Boqvist has a helper in each of the Blackhawks' first two games this year, although he also carries a minus-2 rating. The 20-year-old blueliner had 13 points in 41 outings as a rookie last year. A first-round pick in 2018, Boqvist may feature in a top-four role by the end of the campaign, and he's already seeing top-unit power-play time. He's worth a look in deeper fantasy formats for managers that can cover what will likely be an unsightly plus-minus rating.
Per general manager Stan Bowman, Boqvist has fully recovered from the concussion he suffered shortly before the NHL put its season on hold in mid-March, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.
Boqvist has been skating in his native Sweden for a while, so this news doesn't exactly come as a surprise, but it's still nice to get confirmation that he'll be ready to play if and when the NHL begins its proposed 24-team playoff.

This is fantastic news for the Blackhawks, as it appeared Boqvist may be facing an extended absence after suffering a shoulder injury for the second time this season Wednesday against the Bruins.

Boqvist was crunched into the boards by David Krejci in the second period. The Blackhawks' defenseman immediately went to the locker room and was ruled out prior to the start of the third.

Boqvist saw his shot attempt late in the first period tipped by Dominik Kubalik for the opening tally. The Swedish blueliner has picked up points in his last three games (goal, two helpers).

Boqvist scored a goal on three shots in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Red Wings.
Boqvist's goal at 8:47 of the third period gave the Blackhawks their first lead of the game, and it stood as the game-winning tally. The Swede now has five points and 25 shots in 18 games this season. He's been pressed into top-pairing duties with Calvin de Haan and Brent Seabrook both done for the year with shoulder surgeries. The larger role should lead to a little more offense for Boqvist, but fantasy owners in redraft formats probably won't be interested.
