After taking a puck to the head and exiting last night’s game in the second period, Blackhawks’ rookie defenseman Lucas Carlsson has officially been ruled out for tonight’s game in Detroit as he is still in concussion protocol. The Hawks recalled Dennis Gilbert from Rockford on an emergency basis earlier today, so this news does not come as much of a shock.

Another update on the injury front concerns forward Zack Smith. The veteran forward, who had been shut down for the season last week, underwent shoulder surgery today.

Smith posted four goals and seven assists over 50 games during the 2019-20 campaign. He is expected to return in three to four months and will be ready to go for the team’s training camp ahead of the 2020-21 season.
