Entering a Friday night matchup against the Arizona Coyotes, forward Henrik Borgstrom will return to the Chicago Blackhawks’ lineup.
Borgstrom last appeared in a game on October 24 before entering COVID-19 protocol on October 26. The Finnish forward returned to the team on November 3 but has not played in a game since. He missed the Blackhawks’ game against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday due to a non-COVID-related illness.
