Daley fell forward when his head collided with Thorburn's right knee midway through the second period of the Hawks' 3-1 victory.

Daley was motionless on the ice and a stretcher was brought out. He was able to get to his feet and skated off the ice with assistance from the Hawks' medical staff.
Daley has five assists in 27 games in his first session with Chicago.
David Rundblad will likely play in his spot for his first game since Oct. 29. The 25-year-old Swedish defenseman is scoreless with eight shots in five games this season.
