There’s some light at the end of the tunnel for Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw, but that doesn’t mean that his return from a lower-body injury is imminent.
“He’s progressing. Felt better the last couple of days, encouraging sign, but I wouldn’t expect him (Sunday),” Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Shaw sustained the injury in Game 1 of the Blackhawks’ second round series against Minnesota when he was hit by Clayton Stoner. His mixture of grit and skill has been missed by the Blackhawks, who have dropped two straight contests going into Game 5.
With Shaw doubtful and forward Brandon Bollig facing a possible suspension, the Blackhawks might put Kris Versteeg back into the lineup. Versteeg was a healthy scratch in Game 4 and has two assists in seven playoff contests.
