While Patrick Sharp won’t be making the trip to Denver for Friday’s rematch with the Avalanche, Marian Hossa, Andrew Shaw and Steve Montador were on the Blackhawks’ team charter that left on Thursday.

Michael Frolik, who has missed the last two games with the flu, wasn’t on the charter but will meet the team in Colorado.

Hossa was a late scratch on Wednesday with an upper body injury. He took the pregame warmup but decided he couldn’t go.

Shaw was hurt in the second period when he took an elbow from Paul Stastny in the head.

Sharp was injured in the third period when he was checked hard into the glass by Avs defenseman Ryan O’Byrne and left the ice holding his left shoulder. Hawks coach Joel

Quenneville called it an upper body injury and will update the media on Sharp’s condition following Friday’s morning skate in Denver.

Brandon Bollig was recalled from Rockford a day after being sent down.
