UPDATE: In an email to the Sun-Times, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said, "We are following up to understand the circumstances, but we don't anticipate any action will need to be taken." So in other words, don't expect Marty Turco to be fined by the NHL.


A Montreal Canadiens fan and season ticket-holder named Robert had an interesting time Tuesday at the Bell Centre.

So he called into Game Points with Matthew Ross on Team 990 in Montreal after the Canadiens' 2-1 overtime win against the Blackhawks. He apparently had a bet going with Hawks goalie Marty Turco.

ST. LOUIS -- Goalie Marty Turco may have given way to rookie Corey Crawford in the Blackhawks' net, but the veteran showed a clever way of staying in the game.

Check out this video of him in the Hawks' 5-3 win over the St. Louis Blues Monday afternoon:


VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Marty Turco will be back in goal for the Blackhawks when they face the NHL-leading Canucks Friday at Rogers Arena.


DENVER -- Blackhawks goalie Marty Turco will be making his first start in more than a week Monday against the Colorado Avalanche.

Turco got the nod from the coach Joel Quenneville over Corey Crawford, who is 7-0-1 in his last seven starts.

With the Hawks having some days off between games, it's important that Turco sees some action. Both goalies get their fair share of games as the season progresses.

Here are some statistics comparing Marty Turco and Antti Niemi. The Hawks signed Turco to a one-year deal Monday, while deciding to walk away from Niemi and his arbitration award of $2.75 million.

The Blackhawks' decision is in. The Hawks will completely walk away from goalie Antti Niemi and his arbitration award of $2.75 million, making him an unrestricted free agent.

To replace him, the Hawks have signed veteran goalie Marty Turco to a one-year deal.
