Caleb Jones Out 6 Weeks

On Friday morning the Blackhawks announced defenseman Caleb Jones will miss approximately six weeks because of a left wrist strain.

This news will put additional strain on the Blackhawks’ overhauled blue line; Wyatt Kalynuk is already on the shelf for 2-4 weeks to start the regular season.

Riley Stillman and Calvin de Haan figured to play important bottom-pair roles with Seth Jones, Jake McCabe and Connor Murphy making up three of the top four. The injuries to Caleb Jones and Kalynuk opens the door for Ian Mitchell and possibly another youngster — Jakub Galvas? Nicolas Beaudin? — to earn ice time early in the season.

    To bad hope he gets back healthy, was playing well. The possiblities of similar ltir situation with Shaw as they did with Hosaa are available with C. Jones and Kalyhuk both could be out long enough to start year on ltir as did Tootoo and Rozival, allowing them to be over cap on opening day.

    Injuries ! Good thing they have 50 guys between the AHL and ECHL available ! So now they’ll be driving in to play at U.C. and then staying downtown at The Thompson ?! It’s a hard game to play and you have to be in fantastic physical condition ! Pops 4

    6 weeks or more ..ankle and wrist are body parts that you need to take your time because it can come back very easily. Ask K Dach
    No need to put pressure on those kids plus he can work with is skating iff he needs it.
    Many other kids are waiting in line to play with the team

    Tough break for the kid, he’s played well in the preseason. Wonder if its time for StanBo to announce that we’re headed back to “rebuild” mode?? Nothing will change with this team until Stubborn StanBo scraps this insane defensive system but please continue so we can get rid of him and get a HOCKEY guy in the building.
