Corey Crawford is expected to speak publicly on Friday and an update on his status is sure to be a topic of discussion.

Crawford will be attending a Chicago Blackhawks' fan convention. He missed the last 47 games of the season because of a head injury. Chicago hopes to have him back for the start of the 2018-19 season, but the risk of re-injury should be a concern for interested fantasy managers.

Although we still don't have much details regarding Corey Crawford's (head) status, Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman once again expressed optimism about the goaltenders availability.

"Corey was actually just in town," Bowman said. "I ran into him yesterday, talked to him for awhile. So, yeah, things are looking good. He said he hasn’t done a whole lot of on-ice stuff yet, but like most of our guys, a few of our guys were just starting to skate today as well. … I know he has been training off ice. Hopefully, things are good." Crawford last played on Dec. 23 and the Blackhawks' hopes of getting back into the playoffs are largely tied into their goaltenders' health. When Crawford was healthy last season, he was superb with a 2.27 GAA and .929 save percentage in 28 games.

Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman reiterated that Corey Crawford is expected to be available at the start of training camp.

"What I said at the end of the year was still the case now, which is we expect Corey to be back," Bowman said. "We don’t have any reason to think that’s not going to happen." Beyond that though, there hasn't been an update on Crawford's condition. He missed the final 47 games of the 2017-18 campaign due to a head injury and he reportedly hasn't been on the ice since February. Given that we're in the offseason, we might not get any more substantial information on Crawford's condition for a while.

Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman expects Corey Crawford to bounce back in 2018-19.

"We have expectations that he's going to be the same goalie he's been," Bowman said. "I don't think there's any reason to doubt that. He's got a lot of confidence. The last couple of seasons, he's played a bigger role on our team, and we're looking for that next year. We're hopeful that's the case." Crawford sat out the last 47 games of the season with a head injury, but Chicago expects him to return to form.
Apr 10 - 9:37 AM

Corey Crawford (head) should be ready for next season.

Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said, "We expect him to be fine." Crawford has been working out off the ice. He hasn't skated since Feb. 12 and he hasn't played since Dec. 23. We'll keep you posted on his status if there are updates during the off-season.
Apr 2 - 1:57 PM

Corey Crawford (head) remains "status quo," according to coach Joel Quenneville.

Crawford has been sidelined since Dec. 23. The Blackhawks bench boss said it's doubtful that Crawford will be back on the ice in the next few days. It is looking more and more likely that he won't play again this season, but that shouldn't come as a surprise.
Mar 7 - 11:00 AM

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville admitted that Corey Crawford (upper body) might not return this season.

Crawford hasn't been ruled out for the rest of the season, but Quenneville's tone with regards to the goaltender's outlook seems to have changed. Crawford hasn't been skating recently and with the Blackhawks essentially out of the playoff picture, it might be better just to give Crawford all the rest he needs.
Feb 21 - 1:03 PM

Corey Crawford (upper body) wasn't on the ice Thursday.

At times it's looked like Crawford might be close to returning, but nothing is set in stone yet. As far as Crawford's timetable goes, on Thursday Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville only said that he's hopeful that he'll return at some point this season.
Feb 15 - 1:54 PM

Corey Crawford was on the ice with his Chicago teammates for the morning skate on Monday.

There is still no definitive timetable for Crawford's return, but he appears to be making progress. "As far as I'm concerned, right now, for me, we're just looking at it day to day to try to get better to put myself in a position to play, and that's all," said the Blackhawks goaltender. The Blackhawks have not internally discussed the possibility of shutting Crawford down for the rest of the season, but Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times believes that would be the right thing to do.
Feb 12 - 3:42 PM

Corey Crawford will join his teammates during their road trip in Arizona but will not play.

Crawford is obviously nearing a return and it won't be long until we see the stud goaltender back in a Blackhawks uniform. His teammates definitely need him back as they have struggled to get consistent goaltending from the duo of Anton Forsberg and Jeff Glass. If someone dropped Crawford in your league, now would be the perfect time to scoop him back up. Coach Quenneville said we could expect Crawford back "next week or soon right after."
Feb 10 - 1:28 PM

Corey Crawford (upper body) will stay off the ice for the next couple days.

Apparently that was part of the Blackhawks' plan rather than a setback. Either way, it does highlight that he shouldn't be regarded as getting close to returning just yet. He last played on Dec. 23.
Feb 7 - 3:42 PM

Corey Crawford (upper body) skated again Monday.

However, Crawford still hasn't practiced with his teammates and he might be several days away from doing that. Coach Joel Quenneville doesn't expect Crawford's time on the shelf to last much longer after he rejoins the team.
Feb 5 - 1:48 PM

Corey Crawford had an on-ice workout today for the first time since sustaining his upper-body injury.

Crawford's last game was on Dec. 23. Head coach Joel Quenneville said the netminder's return to the ice is an encouraging development and that is he expected to skate again tomorrow. We still wouldn't expect to see Crawford back any time soon.
Feb 3 - 2:33 PM

Corey Crawford (upper body) hasn't begun to skate yet.

Crawford last played on Dec. 23 and remains out indefinitely. Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville recently expressed optimism that Crawford would be able to return before the end of the regular season though.
