As training camp opened on Friday at the Fifth Third Bank arena, the Blackhawks announced some long awaited injury updates regarding the players at training camp and the players that were hurt in the Traverse City prospect tournament.

Full release here:

Dach is being held out of practice as a result of concussion protocol. He took a big hit in the seventh place game of the rookie tournament on Tuesday and was kept out of action for precautionary purposes.

Kurashev was also injured in the seventh-place game on Tuesday, but his injury is listed as “left knee/shoulder contusion.” The team stated that the 19 year old former 2018 fourth round draft pick will not practice Friday.

Meanwhile, de Haan has been recovering from offseason shoulder surgery and also has a groin strain. He is expected to be out of the lineup 2–3 weeks, but the team hoped to have him in the lineup for the season opener.

The Blackhawks continue training camp this weekend and hos the annual Training Camp Festival on Sunday at the United Center. Following Sunday’s team scrimmage, Chicago opens the preseason as they travel to take on the Washington Capitals.

    “seventh place game of the rookie tournament” might be the most meaningless game ever played. Unfortunate news for the start of Dach’s pro career.

    But hey, Gronkowski said he has 20+ Concussions and he’s going to the Hall of Fame LOL

    This preseason schedule goofy as I’ve ever seen – 3 nights in a row, then split into two squads in order to play in BOS and across the ocean the next day, and week of practice.  This roster of bottom 6 heavy guys could use more time to sort itself but … is what it is.

    Not surprised by deHaan’s delay and tho I sure hope I’m wrong, the guy seems one check away from right back on IR – for a dman, one shoulder surgery is too many, a second on the same body part …?

    As for Dach. Not good to fall behind right from the start and concussion protocol time frames are anybody’s (any body’s) guess. Too bad for the rook. Think it might cost him the chance at a full season w/ the big club. Time will tell of course …
