Blackhawks' Adam Boqvist: Picks up first career assist
Boqvist supplied a power-play assist in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
Boqvist found Alex Nylander, who set up Dominik Kubalik for a late tally to break up Marc-Andre Fleury's shutout bid. Boqvist has two points in his first seven career games. The 19-year-old defenseman should stay in the lineup as the Blackhawks battle injuries along the blue line -- Calvin de Haan (shoulder) and Duncan Keith (groin) are both unavailable currently....

Blackhawks' Alexander Nylander: Supplies helper in loss
Nylander managed a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
Nylander delivered the primary helper on Dominik Kubalik's goal in the final minute of the contest. The assist snapped a personal six-game point drought for Nylander. He's up to 11 points and 50 shots in 30 outings. With a lack of non-scoring stats -- 12 hits, seven blocked shots, six PIM -- Nylander's not much of a factor in the fantasy game yet.... See More ...

Blackhawks' Dominik Kubalik: Strikes for late power-play goal
Kubalik netted a power-play goal in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
His eighth tally of the year prevented Marc-Andre Fleury from shutting out the Blackhawks. Kubalik has scored in consecutive games, and three of his last six outings as well. For the year, the Czech winger has 12 points, 62 shots on goal and 46 hits in 29 games.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Corey Crawford: No success in Vegas
Crawford let in five goals on 37 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
Crawford actually kept the Golden Knights off the board in the first period, but a three-goal middle frame sunk the netminder. The 34-year-old dropped to 6-8-2 with a 3.02 GAA and a .909 save percentage in 17 games this year. Given the rough performance from Crawford, it will likely be Robin Lehner in goal Thursday in Arizona.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Calvin de Haan: Returning to Chicago
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.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Calvin de Haan: Exits with shoulder injury
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.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Olli Maatta: Remains sidelined
Maatta (illness) will miss Tuesday's matchup with Vegas, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.
Maatta will be out for his fourth straight game due to his illness and will be replaced by youngster Adam Boqvist who was recalled from AHL Rockford on Tuesday. In 27 games this season, the 25-year-old Maatta notched one goal and seven helpers and should be capable of reaching the 20-point mark.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Corey Crawford: Taking on Golden Knights
Crawford will guard the road net in Tuesday's matchup against the Golden Knights, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.
Crawford has been inconsistent lately, and he's been rotating with Robin Lehner in the crease. The former is in line for plenty of action, as Vegas ranks second in the league with 36.3 shots on net per home game, although it has struggled to convert with just 2.94 goals per contest (20th)....

Blackhawks' Drake Caggiula: Will sit out road trip
Caggiula (concussion) won't travel with the team during it's upcoming three-game road trip, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.
Although Caggiula is considered day-to-day, he won't have a chance to return until Sunday's matchup against the Wild. The team recalled Matthew Highmore for the trip.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Duncan Keith: Out next three games
Keith (groin) won't travel during the team's upcoming three-game road trip, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.
Keith still hasn't started skating after suffering a groin injury Nov. 29, so it's not surprising that he'll sit out for a few more contests. The Blackhawks recalled Adam Boqvist for the trip since Olli Maatta is dealing with the flu as well. Keith will aim to get healthy for a matchup against the Wild on Dec. 15.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Matthew Highmore: Packs bags for NHL
The Blackhawks recalled Highmore from AHL Rockford on Monday.
The Blackhawks need depth at forward since Andrew Shaw and Drake Caggiula are on IR with concussions, so Highmore gets the call after posting 14 points over 21 AHL games this season. The 23-year-old is the 13th forward on the roster, so there's no guarantee he draws in during the team's upcoming three-game road trip, starting Tuesday in Vegas.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Andrew Shaw: Designated for long-term IR
Shaw (concussion) was flipped to long-term injured reserve Monday.
Shaw was already on injured reserve, but his placement on LTIR will rule him out through the Christmas break. With the center unavailable, the club promoted Matthew Highmore from AHL Rockford, who figures to compete with Kirby Dach and Ryan Carpenter for Shaw's spot in the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Adam Boqvist: Jumps to big club
The Blackhawks recalled Boqvist from AHL Rockford on Monday.
The 19-year-old blueliner made his NHL debut and played six games in November, posting a goal and 10 shots on net. The Blackhawks need his depth again, as Duncan Keith (groin) is on IR and Olli Maata is dealing with an illness. Boqvist's first chance to crack the lineup is Tuesday against the Golden Knights....

Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews: In on every Chicago goal
Toews had a goal and two assists with five shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to Arizona. He also had four PIM and won 10 of 14 faceoffs (71.4 percent).
All three of Toews' points came in the opening period as the Blackhawks built a 3-0 lead. He opened the scoring with his sixth goal of the year in the game's opening minute before assisting on goals by Alex DeBrincat (PP) and Dominik Kubalik. The 31-year-old had an exceptionally quiet opening month with a goal and an assist in 11 games. Since then, the Chicago captain has five goals and 11 assists in 19 games.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Dominik Kubalik: Scores seventh of season
Kubalik scored a goal on three shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Coyotes.
Kubalik deposited his seventh goal of the season late in the first period to give the Blackhawks a 3-1 lead. The 24-year-old rookie has 11 points through 28 games and generally averages between nine and 13 minutes of playing time per night.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Alex DeBrincat: Scores in third straight
DeBrincat scored a power-play goal on two shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Coyotes.
DeBrincat scored midway through the first period to give Chicago a 2-0 lead. It was his third straight game with a goal after having gone his previous 12 outings without lighting the lamp. The 21-year-old has eight goals and 22 points in 30 games this season, a far cry from the 41-goal, 76-point season he produced as a sophomore in 2018-19.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Robin Lehner: Outstanding in shootout loss
Lehner stopped 44 of 47 shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Coyotes.
A tough loss for Lehner, who had a pair of two-goal leads in the first period but ultimately took his fourth loss in the last five starts. The 28-year-old could be back in net as soon as Tuesday at Vegas.... See More ... See Less
