Date:

Corey Crawford (concussion) skated on Monday at practice.

Crawford still appears to be on target to return on Oct. 18 against the Arizona Coyotes. Chicago has allowed 14 goals against through three games this season with Cam Ward between the pipes.
Oct 10 - 11:00 AM

Corey Crawford (concussion) may be ready to return to the crease around Oct. 18.

"If all goes well, that could be a perfect scenario," said coach Joel Quenneville. "But you never know if there's a bump or two in the road. But after this weekend together, we'll see how he handles that and we'll get a better idea on picking a date." Quenneville was cautiously optimistic that Crawford will be available around that time. He doesn't feel that Crawford will be available before Oct. 18.
Oct 2 - 2:25 PM

Corey Crawford (concussion) still isn't expected to play on Thursday in Chicago's season opener.

Crawford was back at practice on Monday and he is getting closer. "I'm still not 100 percent clear," said the Blackhawks netminder. "But it's almost there. We're pretty close." Crawford is expected to travel with the team, but he won't be rushed back to the crease.
Oct 2 - 10:42 AM

Corey Crawford (concussion) has received medical clearance to play.

Crawford took part in Monday's practice. He still will probably need some time to get back into game shape, so he might not be available for the start of the season, but this is obviously extremely encouraging news for the Blackhawks. His last NHL game was on Dec. 23.
Oct 1 - 3:00 PM

Corey Crawford (concussion) might be able to take part in Monday's practice.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville believes that even if Crawford isn't ready to resume practicing on Monday, it will happen early next week. Crawford last played on Dec. 23 and probably won't be ready for the start of the regular season, but the news on his progress recently has been largely encouraging.
Sep 29 - 3:57 PM

Corey Crawford (concussion) being available for the season opener "may be stretching it at this point," per coach Joel Quenneville.

Crawford hasn't begun practicing yet, so it's not surprising to hear that he likely won't be ready for the season opener. He might resume practicing at some point this week though, so progress is being made. He last played on Dec. 23.
Sep 24 - 2:26 PM

Corey Crawford (concussion) is getting closer to practicing with the team, according to coach Joel Quenneville.

Quenneville hasn't ruled out Crawford's return to practice for this coming week. He has been working on his own with goaltending coach Jimmy Waite since training camp opened, which has led many to believe he won't be ready for the start of the regular season. Crawford was on the ice for 30 minutes again on Sunday.
Sep 23 - 3:02 PM

Corey Crawford (concussion) is unlikely to be ready to start the regular season.

Crawford still hasn't practiced with his teammates and given that the Blackhawks' regular season opener is October 4th, his chances of being ready to go once the campaign starts are dwindling even though he has been making some progress at training camp.
Sep 22 - 12:05 PM

Corey Crawford (concussion) will have a scheduled day off on Thursday.

Crawford had a shorter session on Wednesday, but that was part of the plan according to coach Joel Quenneville. The Blackhawks netminder has been on the ice for six straight days. Crawford is on the mend from a concussion he suffered last season.
Sep 19 - 3:02 PM

Corey Crawford was on the ice Sunday for another solo session with goaltending coach Jimmy Waite.

"He's stronger, and he's feeling better," head coach Joel Quenneville said. "So it's all encouraging." The Blackhawks want Crawford on the ice as much as possible. He hasn't participated in a team practice since a morning skate Feb. 12 in Arizona. Crawford is still dealing with concussion symptoms and his status for Chicago's regular-season opener remains in doubt.
Sep 17 - 10:50 AM

Corey Crawford confirmed that he was out with a concussion last season.

Crawford hasn't fully recovered from the symptoms yet, but feels he is getting close. He didn't practice with teammates on Friday, but did work on the ice with goaltending coach Jimmy Waite.
Sep 14 - 12:29 PM

Corey Crawford took to the ice early on Friday morning.

Crawford worked with goaltending coach Jimmy Waite an hour before camp officially opened. While it's encouraging that he is back on the ice, it doesn't seem like he is back to 100 percent yet. Crawford will not practice with his teammates on Friday.
Sep 14 - 10:21 AM

As we approach training camp, Corey Crawford's (head) status still isn't known.

Blackhawks president John McDonough was asked about Crawford and he wasn't sure what the goaltender's status was either. "I know he's been working out on a regular basis, so we'll find out shortly," McDonough added. Crawford hasn't played since Dec. 23, 2017. Crawford is a huge part of the Blackhawks, so naturally his availability for the 2018-19 campaign is of key importance to Chicago. It is worth noting that the Blackhawks did sign Cam Ward over the summer, so they're not as dependent on Crawford going into this season as they were in 2017-18.
Sep 7 - 6:06 AM

Corey Crawford (head) said he isn't quite 100 percent yet, but he has come a long way in the last couple of months.

Crawford added that it's "very possible" that he'll be fully recovered by the start of training camp. He hopes to get back on the ice soon. Crawford is confident he can bounce back once he is back to full health. He missed the last 47 games of the 2017-18 campaign because of a suspected head injury, but he wouldn't go into detail about the problem.
