Chicago Blackhawks forward Sam Lafferty will be out of the lineup for Friday afternoon’s contest with the Montreal Canadiens. Per the team, Lafferty is dealing with an upper-body injury. It is likely that he will miss a few games.
Boris Katchouk will draw into the lineup on Friday in Lafferty’s absence. Katchouk has appeared in nine games so far this season for the Blackhawks. He has yet to notch a tally on the scoresheet.
