Blackhawks

Blackhawks defenseman Adam Boqvist took part in pregame warmups for Friday's game in Detroit against the Red Wings, but went in early.

A few minutes prior to the contest, the Hawks announced the rookie would not play in the game due to a right wrist injury. Chicago was already down a defenseman after Lucas Carlsson took a puck up high in Thursday's 4-3 win against the Edmonton Oilers and was placed in concussion protocol.

Following the 2-1 loss in Detroit on Friday, Blackhawks head coach Jeremy Colliton addressed the 19-year-old blueliner's injury. 

"He missed time, I don't know if you noticed, last game," Colliton said. "He left during the second period and he came back. But in the end, it was just . . . he couldn't get through it."

Boqvist picked up two assist's in Thursday's game, tying a career-best three-game point streak. He had five assists on the streak. 

Defenseman Dennis Gilbert was recalled on an emergency basis from the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League for the game due to Carlsson's injury.

Boqvist has 13 points (four goals, nine assists) and a +/- rating of -3 for the Hawks in 40 games this season. The Blackhawks have won four straight games and are four points out of a playoff spot with 15 games remaining in the regular season.
