Bickell to miss 2-3 weeks
The Blackhawks will have to do without left wing Bryan Bickell for what coach Joel Quenneville called a couple weeks with a left knee injury suffered in Tuesday's loss at Colorado.
Bickell returned to Chicago on Wednesday to have the knee examined.
"Bick, he's likely out a couple weeks," Quenneville told reporters on Thursday in Winnipeg. "We'll know a little bit more as we progress, but hopefully that's the time frame."
Winger Jeremy Morin was recalled from Rockford on Wednesday and will replace Bickell on the third line.
"It certainly gives Mo here a chance to play a little bit more," Quenneville said.
Marian Hossa will return to the lineup at Winnipeg after missing three games with a lower body injury.
"Hoss really makes a big difference coming back in our lineup," Quenneville said.
