(USATSI) The Chicago Blackhawks announced that rookie defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk will be sidelined three to four months with a fractured left patella. The 23-year-old blueliner was injured when taking a shot off the left knee Sunday against the Dallas Stars . He will undergo surgery Thursday to repair the fracture. It’s bad news for the Blackhawks, but worse for van Riemsdyk who had really looked to be coming into his own in his first NHL season. The younger brother of Toronto Maple Leafs forward James van Riemsdyk was signed as an undrafted free agent out of the University of New Hampshire last offseason. In 18 games this season, van Riemsdyk had one assist, but appeared to have gained the trust of the often fickle Blackhawks coaching staff. He averaged 13:32 a night while occupying a spot on Chicago’s third defensive pairing. The timing of the injury is rather unfortunate for the Blackhawks rookie. It was a bit of a surprise that the undrafted van Riemsdyk had made the opening night roster at all and even more surprising that he stuck around. His play warranted it, however. Now his absence opens the door for others in the Blackhawks’ relatively verbose prospect pipeline to step into a lineup that has been awfully tough to crack. source: http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/eye-on-hockey/24821022/blackhawks-d-trevor-van-riemsdyk-out-3-4-months-with-patella-fracture

4, and Quenneville has stuck with that timeline when asked about the winger. Crawford, 29, missed six games earlier this season with an upper-body injury, but he has started every game since his return. He likely will shoulder much of the load on the road trip, which begins with a Canadian swing and closes with stops in Colorado, Anaheim and Los Angeles. The challenging stretch comes at an important time for the Blackhawks (10-7-1), who have won three of four after a slump of six losses in nine games. Nashville and St. Louis are off to a strong start in the Central, and Chicago also needs to make up ground in the Western Conference. The circus trip has been kind to the Blackhawks in the past. They went 6-1 on the trip last season to improve to 22-11-4 on the circus run since captain Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane entered the league in the 2007-08 season. ”There’s a lot of experience and guys that have been through these situations. A lot of us have been on these long road trips,” said Kane, who turned 26 on Wednesday. ”We enjoy them. We have fun with them. source: http://www.foxsports.com/nhl/story/blackhawks-eye-consistency-on-circus-trip-111914
