Blackhawks forward Dan Carcillo might need knee surgery, reports CSNChicago.com. And if he does go under the knife, he might not play again this season.

“We’ll see,” Chicago coach Joel Quenneville told reporters when asked if Carcillo’s surgery could be season-ending, as per ‘Hawks beat writer Tim Sassone.

Carcillo suffered his injury on the same play that earned him a seven-game suspension. On Jan. 2 at the United Center, he drove Edmonton’s Tom Gilbert into the end boards, only for Gilbert to bounce off the boards and buckle Carcillo’s knee.

Carcillo is eligible to return Jan. 18 when Chicago hosts Buffalo, but that doesn’t appear likely.

“Obviously, he’s not going to play for a bit and the best course we should know soon,” ‘Hawks GM Stan Bowman said late last week. “With injures sometimes you have to decide, is the rehab going to get it to where it needs to go or not?”

    Maybe Chicago will start playing better without him dragging them down.

    This is bad news for the other teams in the league, it was actually a good thing that this goof plays in chicago cause he just takes up ice time from players that can actually play hockey. With all this time off he can research where Torres and Glass are playing these days since he hates them so much and still thinks they are canucks…….Hopefully Dr. Nick is doing the surgery and we never have to see or hear from this imbecile ever again. Karma’s a bitch!!!!!
