News: Crawford (upper body) will not join the Blackhawks for their two-game road trip, Tracey Myers of the CSN Chicago reports. Impact: Coach Joel Quenneville acknowledged that Crawford could start skating on his own over the next few days, but he wouldn't have been back to full health by the end of the team's road trip. The Blackhawks are still labeling his injury as a day-to-day ailment, with the hope that he'll be able to return to the net at some point during the team's homestand beginning Oct. 26. While he's out, Antti Raanta figures to make both of the next two starts for the Blackhawks, though the newly-recalled Scott Darling could also be called upon to make a turn.(RotoWire, )

News: Crawford (upper body) didn't practice Wednesday, Scott King of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: Crawford didn't start Tuesday due to the unspecified upper-body injury. The fact that he was held out of practice Wednesday leaves his status in doubt for Thursday's game against the Predators. If he can't go, Antti Raanta will likely receive another start in net.(RotoWire, )

News: The Blackhawks announced that Crawford will miss Tuesday's game due to an upper-body injury. Impact: Antti Raanta starts in his place.(STATS, 2:04pm)
Tue. Oct 21, 2014
News: Crawford is actually dealing with an upper-body injury, not an illness, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: The extent of Crawford's injury is uncertain, but it clouds his status for the Blackhawks' next couple games more than an illness would have. Antti Raanta will start in Crawford's place Tuesday and serve as Chicago's primary goaltender until Crawford is able to get back between the pipes.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Oct 21, 2014
News: Crawford will not start Tuesday as expected due to an illness, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: It was announced Monday that Crawford would start Tuesday's game, but he will no longer do so after coming down with the illness. Antti Raanta will get the start in Crawford's place.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Oct 20, 2014
News: Crawford will start Tuesday against the Flyers, Chris Kuc of the Chiago Tribune reports. Impact: Crawford has started every game for the Hawks so far, and will continue to get the majority of the starts, as the team has a light schedule to start the season.(RotoWire, )
Sun. Oct 19, 2014
News: Crawford made 19 saves in a 2-1 overtime win over Nashville on Saturday night. Impact: Crawford is off to a strong start, having gone 3-0-1 with a 1.66 goals-against average in four games.(STATS, 2:44pm)
Oct 19, 2014
News: Crawford turned away 19 of the 20 shots he faced in Saturday's overtime win over Nashville. Impact: Crawford has a terrific 3-0-1 record to start the season and has yet to allow more than two goals in a game. You really can't do much better, especially when you look at the dynamic team playing in front of him. Look for Crawford to rack up 30-plus wins once again this season.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Oct 17, 2014
News: Crawford will start between the pipes Saturday against the Predators, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: Crawford allowed two goals on 18 shots in an overtime loss to the Flames on Wednesday. Through three games, the netminder sports a 2-0-1 record with a .920 save percentage and will look to improve those marks Saturday.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Oct 15, 2014
News: Crawford allowed two goals on 18 shots in Wednesday's OT loss to the Flames. Impact: Crawford was solid in net for most of the night, but let Mikael Backlund wrist one past him with less than a minute to go in overtime to seal the deal. Despite the outcome, the Hawks severely outplayed the Flames, and a game like this will earn Crawford a win on most nights.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Oct 14, 2014
News: Crawford will be in goal for Wednesday's game against the Flames, CSN Chicago's Tracey Myers reports. Impact: Crawford will look to make it three straight victories after picking up the win in his first two starts of the season. He will take on a spotty Calgary squad that lit the lamp twice in its first game, five times in its second, and just once its third contest.(RotoWire, )
Oct 12, 2014
News: Crawford was not as busy on Saturday as he was in the season opener, saving 21 of 23 shots in a 6-2 victory over Buffalo. Impact: Crawford was tested far more against Dallas on Thursday, as he saved 32 of 34 shots in the shootout win. He's expected to be in goal for the Hawks' next game, Wednesday against Calgary. Crawford hasn't posted great results against the Flames in his career, as he's compiled a 3-2-2 record in seven games against them, with a 2.75 GAA and .897 save percentage.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Oct 11, 2014
News: Crawford will start Saturday night's home opener against the Sabres, CSN Chicago reports. Impact: Crawford looked solid on Thursday in the Blackhawks' 3-2 shootout win in Dallas, saving 32 of 34 shots on goal. Looking ahead, it's possible that the Blackhawks could stick with Crawford for each of the next four games after Saturday night. The Blackhawks don't have games on back-to-back days until Oct. 25 and 26, so backup goalie Antti Raanta could collect some dust over the next couple of weeks.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Oct 10, 2014
News: Crawford saved 32 of 34 shots Thursday against the Stars. Impact: He took home No. 1 Star of the Game honors after a magnificent performance in Chicago's season-opening shootout win. Crawford ranked ninth in the NHL last year with a 2.26 goals against average.(STATS, 10:28am)
Fri. Oct 10, 2014
News: Crawford saved 32 of 34 shots on goal on Thursday in the 3-2 Blackhawks' shootout win over the Stars in the season opener, CSN Chicago reports. Impact: Crawford helped keep the Blackhawks in the game against Dallas as the team exhibited sloppy play, especially in the first two periods. Crawford might be seeing more pressure in the early going of the season with some inexperienced defensemen on the team. The Blackhawks let go and traded a few of their veteran defensemen including Nick Leddy, who was sent to the Islanders last week.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Oct 9, 2014
News: Crawford will get the Opening Night start for the Blackhawks against the Stars, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. Impact: Crawford probably isn't as talented as some of the league's elite netminders, but because he plays behind perhaps the league's best collection of forwards and defensemen, he should remain a high-end asset for fantasy purposes. He finished with a 32-16-10 record, 2.26 GAA and .917 save percentage in 59 games last season.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Oct 8, 2014
News: Crawford played in three games this preseason, finishing with a 0-1-1 record while allowing seven goals on 74 shots. Impact: Although Crawford didn't deliver a repeat of his stellar numbers of 2012-13, he remained dependable for Chicago last season. Crawford still remains one of the league's better goalies and is in position to have another successful season with the Blackhawks, who retain much of the core group that advanced to the Western Conference Finals. Unless he suffers any injuries, expect Crawford to start between 55 and 60 games this season and finish within or just outside the top 10 in wins, GAA, and save percentage.(RotoWire, )
