CHICAGO — The Chicago Blackhawks added yet another tough question for their long list of problems if coreycrawford suffered yet another concussion.

Suddenly, their position is up in the atmosphere.

There wasn’t any upgrade on Crawford’s status a day later he had been placed on injured reserve. The two time all star got hurt in the first phase of Sunday’s 7-3 loss to San Jose as soon as the rear of his head struck the perfect post during a frightful goal-mouth pile up.

“Clearly you are feeling like him want himfirst of all as a person, only get back to 100% as quickly as he could. Until then we’ll keep battling.”

Crawford, who helped the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup in 2013 and 2015missed nearly all of last year and also the beginning of this season as a result of concussion. The pair of head injuries in a brief time frame raises questions regarding if he may play.

“It sounds rough, the way he struck his head on the article,” defenseman Connor Murphy said,”especially a guy like that battled so hard to come back and was a significant part of all of us. He had been our very best player. … Hopefully he’s back “

Collin Delia was recalled from Rockford of the American Hockey League on a crisis basis when Crawford proceeded on IR. Cam Ward was place to begin Tuesday night against Nashville.

The Delia began last season before being promoted to Rockford and then making his NHL debut in March. He went 1-1 with Chicago in two starts.

“Just the hardship which I went last season, starting in the ECHL and kind of working my way upward, it’s a enormous character-building moment for me,” Delia said. “I had to find where my game was see whether that is some thing I could take to another level. I believe I sort of demonstrated to teammates and myself, coaches, staff which I had the capabilities.”

Crawford’s concussion is another blow for last-place Chicago, that missed the playoffs last season. Longtime coach Joel Quenneville was fired on Nov. 6, however the Blackhawks moved 4-13-3 in their first 20 games under Colliton.

“We played two of the best games of this season against Pittsburgh and Winnipeg and then a last game (from the Sharks), that’s not where you would like to be,” Colliton said. “But let’s dip straight back . The sky isn’t falling because we lose a game soon after we played a few nights”

The Blackhawks will be with their top defensemen for a while after they chose to advance Henri Jokiharju to Finland for the up coming world junior tournament. The worldwide contest runs from Dec. 26 to Jan. 5 Vancouver, British Columbia.

“it is a great opportunity, we presume, to get him, also because of all of us,” Colliton said. “We are considering what type of player he’s going to be months down the road and in years down the road. It’s a chance for him to move there and also become one of, if not the player that is best, one of the best players and also help lead them to triumph.”
