Some reports indicate Philipp Kurashev will be in the Blackhawks’ lineup when they open the preseason schedule against Columbus on Tuesday night. Others are reporting Kurashev will report to the Québec Remparts (QMJHL).
Whether Kurashev dresses for the Hawks on Tuesday or not, the plan is for him to be with Québec again for the 2018-19 season.
Kurashev, who will turn 19 on Oct. 12, was the Blackhawks’ fourth round pick (#120 overall) in the 2018 NHL Draft. He scored 19 goals with 41 assists in 59 games for Québec last season.
