Blackhawks’ Taylor Hall out week-to-week after reaggravating shoulder

The Chicago Blackhawks’ Taylor Hall will be out week-to-week after reaggravating his shoulder, according to head coach Luke Richardson. The news was originally reported on NBC Sports Chicago.

Hall, a forward for the Chicago Blackhawks, suffered the injury in the second game of the season against the Boston Bruins. He took a blindside hit from his former teammate Brandon Carlo, resulting in the initial shoulder injury. Despite initially being listed as week-to-week, Hall only missed one game.

In the Blackhawks’ home opener against the Vegas Golden Knights, Hall took a hit from defenseman Brayden Pachal. He briefly left the game but returned for the third period. However, Hall did not practice with the team on Monday, and the decision was made to give him some extra time to rest and recover.

Richardson stated, “He’s going to be out for a bit. We’re not sure how long. He was trying to play through it, and instead of making him still try to do that, you could always have a risk of him hurting it worse or something else protecting it.”

While the Blackhawks will certainly miss Hall’s presence in the lineup, they are looking to fill the void with other players. Nick Foligno and Tyler Johnson have been promoted to the first line, and Andreas Athanasiou has been moved up to the first power-play unit. Philipp Kurashev is also expected to make his season debut after recovering from a wrist injury.

The Blackhawks will face the Boston Bruins at the United Center on Tuesday.
