Eager denies concussion possibility

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Ben Eager has a history of concussions, and one caused him to miss 13 games earlier this season. Eager, after missing two games, returned to the ice at the Blackhawks' morning skate on Tuesday and denied that concussion issues have surfaced again. The Hawks and Eager say he simply as an upper body injury. Coach Joel Quenneville said Eager was doubtful for Tuesday night's game against San Jose, and Bryan Bickell went through the morning skate without officially being recalled from Rockford. Who starts as the fourth-line left winger will be a game-time decision. Cam Barker was also off the nice, apparently nursing a lower body injury, so Jordan Hendry figures to be in the lineup as a defenseman again. Cristobal Huet will start in goal for the second straight game.
