SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook returned to practice on Tuesday, his first with the team since he suffered a left-leg injury against the Edmonton Oilers on Nov. 13.
Seabrook missed the last three games after crashing awkwardly into the boards midway through the Blackhawks' home game against Edmonton last week. He skated on his own on Saturday morning in Edmonton. His status for Wednesday night's game against the San Jose Sharks is not yet known.
Michael Frolik (shoulder) also participated in Tuesday's practice; his status for Wednesday isn't known. Frolik skated with the Blackhawks on Friday in Calgary but did not play against the Flames that night or the Oilers the next night.
Tuesday on Sports Talk Live, David Kaplan along with Chris Bleck, Rich Campbell and Jordan Bernfield discuss:
-the posibility of the Cubs signing Yu Darvish and the need for one more pitcher in the rotation
-Jim Thome looking like he'll be inducted into Cooperstown tomorrow
-Sammy Sosa's Hall of Fame chances
-Corey Crawford back to working out as the Hawks losing continues
-DeMarcus Cousins with a game for the ages, but is his baggage worth signing him?
-Do the Eagles have a chance of beating the Patriots in the Super Bowl?
Need proof that the college football recruiting process is evaluating and offering players younger than ever before? All you need to do is ask Antioch quarterback Athan Kaliakmanis (6-foot-3, 185 pounds).
Kaliakmanis, who as a freshman was Carmel's starting quarterback before transferring to his home school district after the fall semester, recently landed his first verbal scholarship from Syracuse. Kaliakmanis, who is also on several college recruiting radar screens this winter, was easily one of the stronger performers in a loaded quarterback field at the recently held EDGYTIM MLK Underclassmen Showcase, powered by EFT Football Academy.
I caught up with Kaliakmanis and discussed how Syracuse gave him his first scholarship, his recent transfer to Antioch and much more.
