Update 4:34pm ET: From Adam Jahns at the Sun-Times—
“We’re in the fortunate position to have to make a difficult decision on two netminders that impressed throughout our entire training camp,” general manger Stan Bowman said in a statement. “Having both Ray Emery and Alexander Salak as a part of the Chicago Blackhawks organization makes us stronger in both the short-term and long-term.”
According to the numbers, Salak outperformed Emery this preseason, recording a 1.94 goals against average compared to Emery’s 4.54. But it was always thought that the Hawks preferred to have an experienced goalie behind Crawford, who is entering his first full year as a starter.
