Tyler Johnson, Isaak Phillips Enter COVID Protocol
So much for the Blackhawks getting healthy…
After taking three players out of COVID protocol in the last two days, the Hawks announced after practice on Wednesday morning that forward Tyler Johnson and rookie defenseman Isaak Phillips have been placed in COVID protocol and will not be available for the game against Carolina.
Wyatt Kalynuk did skate with the team, however.

Tough luck for them, hopefully just a precaution.
I think I speak for almost all Blackhawk fans
Please do not mention the word Covid again and call it the common cold protocol
call a spade a spade
enough is enough
You don’t speak for me. Get the gosh darn shot!!! It may save your life.
Wub the F*** you don’t speak for me either
Let’s just not talk about covid, vax, politics, etc and stick to hockey
sorry meant ???.
sorry again. apparently thumbs translates to question marks. meant three thumbs up.
Hammer….do some due diligence on the jab….it’s bullshit ! If it was so good why is the government attempting to pay people to take it….why are so many doctors and nurses refusing to take the jab….why after so many people who have taken the jab, the virus cases are rising ?? Isn’t the jab supposed to stop this ? This is the FREE United States….I am in charge of my medical decision, not you or the government….you want the government to control your medical decisions ? Move to Russia or China.
Tab – can you please create a covid thread so they can debate their versions of truth somewhere other than on a hockey thread?
You do a great job of keeping politics, religion and crap like this from corrupting an excellent site.
SS couldn’t agree more.
Nobody speaks for me also Covid is there.
I am glad to see that Stillman and Borgstrom are back ,hopefully we can perform and get a win tonight again the the Mighty Hurricane.
I’m not debating the shot. I am going to suggest something else. I think the Blackhawks are using it to avoid sending guys down to Rockford. Granted, Kane is not in that vein…nor is Borgstrom or, in my opinion, Stillman. But, using this protocol can rest guys with injuries without putting them into any mandatory injury time outs. Is it a clever use of it? Yes. Is it ethical…nope.
What’s my evidence? The lone victory was the result of a well rested Kane having a renewed sense of vigor. Was he banged up? Maybe. Seeing T. Johnson on the list, especially after taking that brutal hit, leads me to believe that this may be the case of the team shuffling injured guys into protocols to give them rest. They can also sit guys down without any recourse. Just a theory.
We live in “interesting times” guys. Stay strong and stay united.
The wub certainly doesn’t speak for me either. Hope the Boys are back soon.
In a perfect world, Colliton gets covid since the Wirtz family lacks the stones to fire this phoney pile of crap to remove him from the equation. Our season is ruined!!! Thank you very much! I’m in my mid-60’s hoping for another cup, but the organization cares more about this monotone fraud than they do about me and the Blackhawks fan base.
If the jab is so safe and effective why jave so many players missed games?
From what i have heard the nhl players are 100 % jabbed.
I guess its just the elephant in the room!
Edman68, Ding,Ding.Ding you are the winner on what these lists are being used for.
Edman teams manipulate ltir to get under cap all season, or to add a player for the playoffs. They manipulate regular il to give a player an extended rest and call up somebody they want to look at. Did you really believe no teams would manipulate covid protocol too, of course they do.
Eichel to Vegas for Tuch Krebs,1st and 3rd round picks 22 and 23.
Three goals MAF should have stopped.
Get the shot or don’t but please don’t try to tell other people that getting vaccinated isn’t smart and safe.
JR – plus Gus and McCabe gift wrapped goals for CAR
One consistent thing about all of Colliton’s CHI teams since day 1 is they can’t hold third period leads – there has been little to no progress in that area in 4 years – he can’t get his players to stop making bad decisions when it’s most important
Sure the players make the mistakes but it doesn’t seem to matter who’s on the roster the same mistakes at key moments keep happening- that’s coaching or lack thereof
Unfortunately I still feel as I have since the season began that the team is on a fast track to nowhere with JC as coach
Edman68: That’s a good point.
Beer League: Take the shot, don’t take the shot I don’t really give a rat’s b-hind. Just don’t go like thousands of other people later after the fact crying that they should have taken the shot when they cant breath. I’m all good. Getting my booster Tuesday. I almost lost my wife because of it. For the whole month she had it, I was at her side the whole time and I didn’t catch it. It hits everybody differently , my niece is a nurse and she didn’t want the shot, “my body, my right, blah blah blah” she seen literally hundreds of people die from it but still, nope!!. She even had COVID herself, sick as a dog, but nope “I got rights”. When the Hospital told her “take it or leave” she finally took it. But she’s 24, knows everything and going thru her second divorce, so what do I know. I’m just an old man.
Ultimately blowing leads is on the players but they are certainly getting no help from Colliton who is incapable of in game adjustments and coaching to the score and time of the game. After taking the 2 goal lead the Hawk forwards were continually beat up ice losing their checks. Drop back into a 1-3-1 trap/ left wing lock and make it impossible to be beat up ice. Fleury has to stop 3 of those 4 goals. Change is long overdue as this team is collectively very dumb.
11 games: Given up 42 goals. Good thing Arizona is in our division. At least our team isn’t totally the worst team in the league.
Good post Hammer Time
Hammer, I had the virus last year, for me it was weaker than a common cold, so AGAIN, I AM MOT GETTING THE JAB…IT IS GOVERNMENT TYRANNY !!!
And SS….this is a thread about Covid…so…top bad if you don’t want to hear about it.
And lastly, anyone see the interview with Eichel and Elliot Friedman ? And Eichel saying it’s his body and nobody has the right to tell him if he needs surgery or not, it’s his constitutional right and his body…hmmmm….kind of the same with the Jab isn’t it….my body, my business eh Jack….try saying the same thing about the Jab and you will be banned from playing and earning a game check by the NHL.
Beer League: You can call it “government tyranny” or you can call it what it will be: a “mandate'” but what will happen is if don’t get one: Your “rights” to things will slowly erode as you can see now. So its up to you, you can stomp your feet and refuse or you wont be allowed to do things eventually. You will see that I’ll be correct on this.
