Top Blackhawks News

  • Blackhawks' Arvid Soderblom: Set to start Thursday

    Soderblom is expected to start on the road against LA on Thursday, per Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times.

    Soderblom has a 5-22-1 record, 3.88 GAA and .880 save percentage in 31 appearances this season. He faced LA on March 15 and allowed four goals on 14 shots in just 14:19 of ice time en route to a 5-0 loss, so this is an opportunity for him to get some revenge. The Kings rank 18th offensively with 3.07 goals per contest this campaign.

  • Blackhawks' Nikita Zaitsev: Questionable Thursday

    Zaitsev is questionable for Thursday's tilt against the Kings because of an illness, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Zaitsev has two goals, seven points, 69 hits and 70 blocks in 38 outings this season. Connor Murphy (undisclosed) has already been ruled out for the contest, so if Zaitsev doesn't play either, then Chicago might dress just five defensemen versus LA.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Will miss season finale

    Murphy (undisclosed) will miss the season finale against LA on Thursday because he tweaked something during Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Vegas, per Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times.

    It's unclear if Murphy's current issue is related to the groin injury that kept him out of the lineup from Jan. 16-April 10. Either way, he will conclude the campaign with two goals, eight points, 40 PIM, 116 hits and 113 blocks in 46 appearances. Murphy is inked to a four-year, $17.6 million contract through 2025-26, so he should feature on the Blackhawks' blue line again next season, potentially in one of the top-two pairings.

  • Blackhawks' Philipp Kurashev: Garners assist

    Kurashev notched an assist and blocked two shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Kurashev has been strong to close out the campaign. He's racked up three goals and four assists over his last seven outings while continuing to play on the top line. The 24-year-old winger has 18 goals, 36 assists, 128 shots on net and a minus-42 rating through 74 games this season.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Bedard: Hands out helper

    Bedard notched an assist in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Bedard set up Jason Dickinson for the Blackhawks' lone tally in the loss. With four points over seven contests in April, Bedard has faded late in the season. He's at 61 points, 205 shots on net, 53 hits and a minus-41 rating through 67 appearances while seeing steady top-line usage as a rookie.

  • Blackhawks' Jason Dickinson: Pots goal Tuesday

    Dickinson scored a goal on two shots and blocked two shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Dickinson was promoted to the top line and cashed in for the Blackhawks' lone goal, ending his five-game slump. The center has four tallies over his last 10 contests, but he hasn't posted an assist since March 10. Dickinson has still put together a career year with 22 goals, 13 helpers, 124 shots on net, 139 hits, 71 blocked shots, 43 PIM and a plus-4 rating through 81 appearances.

  • Blackhawks' Petr Mrazek: Solid showing in loss

    Mrazek allowed two goals on 36 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Golden Knights. The third goal was an empty-netter.

    Mrazek hasn't surrendered more than three goals in any of his last seven outings, but he's gone 2-5-0 in that span. The 32-year-old netminder is down to 18-31-4 with a 3.04 GAA and a .907 save percentage through a career-high 56 appearances. The Blackhawks end their season versus the Kings on Thursday, but a starting goalie for that contest hasn't been announced yet.

  • Blackhawks' Petr Mrazek: Facing Vegas

    Mrazek will guard the road net Tuesday against the Golden Knights, per Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times.

    Mrazek only has one win in his past five outings despite posting an impressive .916 save percentage during that span. He has provided a record of 18-30-4 this season with a 3.06 GAA and a .906 save percentage across 55 games played. Vegas sits 11th in the league this campaign with 3.24 goals per contest.

  • Blackhawks' Ethan Del Mastro: Returned to minors

    Del Mastro was reassigned to AHL Rockford on Monday, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.

    Del Mastro has logged two games with the Blackhawks this season in which he failed to register a point while earning a lone hit while averaging 18:35 of ice time. With the youngster headed back to the minors, Nikita Zaitsev or Jaycob Megna figures to rejoin the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with the Golden Knights.

  • Blackhawks' Lukas Reichel: Contributes helper in loss

    Reichel notched an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Reichel has four points over his last seven contests while seeing middle-six minutes in that span. The 21-year-old winger is up to 15 points through 63 outings, matching his output from 23 games a year ago. Needless to say, Reichel has not taken the expected next step in 2023-24. He's added 82 shots on net, a minus-30 rating, 25 hits and 25 blocked shots.

  • Blackhawks' Ryan Donato: Notches assist

    Donato recorded an assist in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Donato has picked up three helpers over six games in April. The 28-year-old continues to bounce around the lineup, though he rarely sees more than bottom-six minutes regardless of which line he's listed on. Donato is at 28 points, 146 shots on net, 101 hits, 26 PIM and a minus-15 rating through 76 appearances, surpassing his 27-point campaign last year with Seattle.

  • Blackhawks' Seth Jones: Provides helper in loss

    Jones registered an assist, four shots on goal and two PIM in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Jones has four goals and one assist over his last 10 contests. The defenseman set up Frank Nazar's first career goal midway through the first period. Jones continues to handle a top-pairing role, accumulating 31 points, 169 shots on net, 127 blocked shots, 75 hits and a minus-14 rating over 65 appearances. He's on track for his lowest scoring output in a full-length campaign since 2014-15.

  • Blackhawks' Andreas Athanasiou: Tallies in Sunday's loss

    Athanasiou scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Athanasiou has three points over his last seven games, including both of his goals this season. The 29-year-old missed significant time with a groin injury this season, and he's lacked offense since returning to the lineup. Athanasiou is at nine points, 42 shots on net and a minus-8 rating through 26 appearances.

  • Blackhawks' Frank Nazar: Scores in NHL debut

    Nazar scored a goal in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

    The highly touted prospect made his NHL debut Sunday, logging 15:55 of ice time. Nazar was drafted 13th overall in 2022 and is likely to get playing time in the Blackhawks' last two games of the season as well. In the long run, he's likely to center the second line, but he'll be eased into action for at least the rest of this season.

  • Blackhawks' Petr Mrazek: Gives up three goals in loss

    Mrazek stopped 30 of 33 shots in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Hurricanes. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.

    Mrazek helped the Blackhawks keep the game competitive, but he failed to protect a pair of one-goal leads, and Seth Jarvis' second goal of the game late in the third period was decisive. Mrazek dipped to 18-30-4 with a 3.06 GAA and a .907 save percentage through 55 appearances this season. The Blackhawks conclude the season on the road with visits to the Golden Knights on Tuesday and the Kings on Thursday.

  • Blackhawks' Frank Nazar: Debuting Sunday

    Nazar will make his NHL debut Sunday against Carolina, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Nazar signed his entry-level deal Saturday after two seasons at the University of Michigan. He tallied 19 goals and 48 points over 54 appearances. Nazar was the 13th overall pick in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft. The 20-year-old is a key part of Chicago's youth movement and, for now, will likely slot in as a middle-six center.
