Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford is expected to miss the next 2-to-3 weeks after injuring his left foot while attending a concert.
Crawford told reporters Wednesday that he took an awkward step while exiting the show. The 2013 Stanley Cup champion backstop was spotted wearing a walking boot during the interview.
Antti Raanta, who has made just three starts so far this season, will take over as the Blackhawks' No. 1 goaltender in Crawford's absence. Chicago recalled Scott Darling from Rockford of the American Hockey League Tuesday to serve as the backup.
Crawford currently ranks third in the NHL with a 1.87 goals-against average and has compiled a 12-5-1 record with a .929 save percentage over 18 starts this season.
Raanta is 1-2-0 with a 2.03 GAA in his limited action.
