What a busy day for the Blackhawks! First Ryan Kesler whines like a baby about Andrew Ladd smacking him around like Gary Coleman’s girlfriend, then Cristobal Huet gets his gig back as the Hawks Number One netminder, now there’s positive news on the injury front.
Coach Joel Quenneville said Dave Bolland, who has been out since mid-November after back surgery, will join the team and begin taking part in team practices in Edmonton on Tuesday. Bolland hopes to be back by early February, in time to skate in a few games before the Olympic break.
No timetable has officially been set for Bolland’s return to game action, but Quenneville was clearly excited at the prospect of getting another center back into the lineup.
