Blackhawks’ Brent Seabrook will miss Rangers game with upper-body injury
Jonathan Toews will also miss Friday’s game, but might return Sunday.
The Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook will not play in Friday’s game against the New York Rangers due to an upper-body injury, the team announced after Thursday’s practice. He’s listed as day-to-day.
Seabrook sustained the injury in the second period of Tuesday’s win over the Arizona Coyotes after he was tripped up by Arizona’s Jordan Martinook. Seabrook hit the ice on his back and appeared to hit his head. He was slow to get up, and skated off to the locker room. He didn’t return.
It’s yet another injury to a star play for Chicago, who are already without forward Jonathan Toews (back) and goaltender Corey Crawford (appendectomy). Toews might be back for Sunday’s game against Dallas, but is likely to return to the ice later this week and will play on the upcoming New York road trip - Tuesday, Dec. 13 at New York Rangers and Thursday, Dec. 15 at New York Islanders.
