CHICAGO, Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane was unable to practice Saturday due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocol.
Ryan Carpenter, a fellow forward, and Erik Gustafsson, a defenseman, also missed practice due to the same reason.
Coach Jeremy Colliton stated, "At the moment, those guys have been in the protocol. We don't know how it will develop day-to-day." "For the most parts, it's beyond our control. We'll adjust as they develop."
On Sunday, the Detroit Red Wings host Chicago. The Blackhawks, who are in financial trouble, have a 0-4-1 record.
Reese Johnson, a forward for the Blackhawks, was recalled from Rockford in the American Hockey League. Johnson scored a goal and assisted in Friday's 6-3 loss to Iowa by the IceHogs.
