Alex Stalock Remains in Concussion Protocol, Will Not Travel with the Blackhawks

Chicago Blackhawks

After practice on Wednesday, the Blackhawks shared an unfortunate update on goaltender Alex Stalock. Stalock was placed in concussion protocol on Tuesday morning, necessitating the recall of Jaxson Stauber from Rockford.

The veteran goaltender will not travel with the Blackhawks on their upcoming two-game trip to Philadelphia and St. Louis, meaning the earliest he could be available would be Sunday when the LA Kings visit the United Center.

Stalock has been the Blackhawks’ best and most consistent goaltender this season. He’s 6-6-1 with a 2.70 goals against average and a .918 save percentage. With Friday off between Philly and St. Louis, Petr Mrazek will likely get both of those starts before the Blackhawks need to consider their options coming home for the back-end of a back-to-back weekend with the Kings on Sunday evening.
