Patrick Sharp Injury Update

UPDATE: On Friday afternoon, the Blackhawks officially labelled Sharp as an “upper-body” injury, adding that no surgery would be required. The team put a 3-4 week timetable on his return.

UPDATE (10:20 pm CT): TSN’s James Duthie is reporting “Patrick Sharp has a fairly severe AC joint shoulder separation. Three weeks out likely the minimum. Could be a month.”

Yahoo’s Nick Cotsonika is first to report Thursday morning that Patrick Sharp will miss 2-3 weeks with “an upper-body injury.”

The schedule lines up very favorably for the Hawks right now if that timetable proves to be accurate; Chicago only plays six games between today and March 25, when the Kings visit the United Center. The next two weeks are the lightest on the calendar for the Hawks.

We’ll update Sharp’s status if/when things are confirmed.

    I hope Sharp is okay.

    On a side note, I have only recently found Nick Cotsonika’s work. Tab you will always be number 1, but I think he does a pretty good job and has some good insight.

    Thx Tab, that is the best news possible… leans to a separated/dislocated shoulder…
    hopefully Doctors didn’t miss any major tears to the rotator or other important ligaments…. those won’t go away on there own!

  3. Justin says:

    Anyone getting a call-up?

  4. Stefanie Lewis says:

    thanks Tab, as always you updates are appreciated. The way #10 crumbled on the ice it looked a lot worse than 3 weeks to me last night. Hope Shaw is ok too…

  5. Gou says:

    With only Bollig getting recalled, does that mean Hossa and Shaw or Froehlich are good to go?

  6. Morgzie says:

    Super grateful Shaprie’s not out for the year. The good start makes it possible, and advisable, to make sure he’s fully healed for the Cup run.

    Thanks for the site Tab. Love to stay in touch with all things Hawks from the Pacific NW.

    It’s not great news, but as Wall said, at least it’s not the rotator cuff…nasty business those…

    Hossa and Shaw flew with the team this afternoon, Frolik arrives Friday to give him as much time to heal from the flu as possible…chances are high that all 3 play…and with Bollig recalled the lineups are likely…

    Saad-Toews-Hossa
    Carcillo-Bolland-Kane
    Bickell-Shaw-Stahlberg
    Bollig/Mayers-Kruger-Frolik

    So we are not getting any other “trendy” call ups like Hayes, Smith of Pirri. Montador also travelled with the team…this is my only concern, that Q will start dressing a 7th DMan on a regular basis and screw up the 4 line rotation…Brookbank needs to focus on getting better at Defence, not learn how to play RW, and Montador needs to be out of the league…he is not good enough at Defence, let alone Wing…I wish the Hawks would demote Montador to the minors and have someone claim him….

  8. Windy City ZMan says:

    I would go with either Stahlberg or Bickell on the Kane & Bolland line depending on which look Q wants to go with. Both have been playing really well and deserve to get the shot. Frolik moves to the 3rd line or Kruger on nights where Mayers C’s the 4th.
    Carcillo should be on the 4th line.

  9. wall says:

    “Severe AC shoulder separation”- that will be at least 4-6 weeks…
    I tore/popped something in my shoulder 8 weeks ago playing B-ball… it is just starting to feel right!!! While I have been playing B-ball with it, I certainly couldn’t play hockey with it! And by the look on Sharp’s face his is a lot worse.

    I like Tab’s next article… Hawks need to find a One Year Top 6 forward as insurance for this Year’s Playoff/Cup!!!!

    Do It!!!!!!

    I don’t believe Montador can be demoted to the minors. He has a one way contract. His time there would be to condition only. If someone knows how the new CBA treats this situation please explain.

    Sr. Brad, I like your line up except I would like to see more speed on the second line. Kane is too quick to have both Bolland and Carcillo on the line with him. Kane would be entering the offensive zone alone to much.

    At this point I really hope someone gets called up besides Bollig and eat Sharp’s mins. I think Ben Smith has earned it, or Morin is worth another shot too.
