Chicago prepared to move on without Sharp : Sports

Sharp originally was scheduled to be the player involved in the event at the Hawks official team store on Michigan Avenue but was replaced by teammate Brandon Saad. Sharp was injured when he was hit along the boards by the Canadiens Alexei Emelin and after the game Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said the veteran would be sidelined for a bit. While that description was vague, the feeling is that Sharps absence likely will be for weeks rather than days. Quenneville said Tuesday the team would, know more in the next day or so, so well see. Losing Sharp for an extended period would make the Hawks adjust to being without a core member of their team. Perhaps the biggest loss would be on the power play as Sharp leads the team with 4 minutes, 15 seconds of ice time per game with the man advantage. He activates the Hawks power play by blasting shots from the point and ranks second in the NHL with 56 shots this season. Hopefully, hes all right, teammate Patrick Kane said. Hes a big part of our lineup and a big part of our team. Hopefully, its not too bad. With 13 forwards on the active roster, including Daniel Carcillo who is sidelined with a right knee injury, the Hawks likely will have to recall a player from Rockford of the AHL to replace Sharp. Top candidates include veteran Peter Regin and the Hawks No. 1 prospect, Teuvo Teravainen. For now, Sharps teammates are looking ahead to likely playing without one of their top talents, beginning Friday night against the Washington Capitals at the United Center. source: http://herald-review.com/sports/hockey/f621b459-ff4d-5733-9d30-c60f11228ff8.html
