Danault, 22, was the 26th overall pick by the Blackhawks in the 2011 Draft. With Rockford, Danault had 13 goals and 25 assists in 70 games last season. He appeared in two games with the Hawks last year.
UPDATE: in the team’s official statement on Tuesday, it was noted that Danault is expected to miss four months, not three as Lazerus initially reported.
