Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford will miss the next two-to-three weeks because of a left foot injury suffered at a concert.
Crawford, who is wearing a walking boot, said he sustained the injury after leaving a recent concert.
Crawford had been scheduled to start against the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday night at the United Center, but backup Antti Raanta instead will get the call. Scott Darling was recalled from Rockford of the AHL to serve as Raanta’s backup.
Crawford had started the Hawks’ last 14 games and for the season had compiled a 12-5-1 record, 1.87 goals-against average and .929 save percentage.
The Hawks will start Antti Raanta tonight against the St. Louis Blues and they have also recalled rookie sensation Scott Darling.
