from Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times,
Since the end of the dismal 2017-18 season, a year of promise that was derailed by Corey Crawford’s head injury in late December, the Blackhawks have steadfastly said they expect their star goaltender to be back in time for training camp and the start of the season. General manager Stan Bowman said it. Joel Quenneville said it. And they both have reaffirmed that belief over the summer.
Crawford isn’t quite so certain.
“That’s hard to say right now, but it’s very possible,” Crawford said Friday in his first public comments since an ill-fated morning skate in Arizona on Feb. 12. “We’ve come a long way in the last couple months, and there’s a really good chance that could happen.”
Moments before he spoke on Friday, Quenneville said he expects that Crawford will be his starting goaltender on opening night.
