The Chicago Blackhawks were back on the ice as a group today as training camps opened across the league. 

Everybody was all smiles except one key player was missing. 

Starting goalie Corey Crawford. 

Head coach Jeremy Colliton broke the news to reporters after practice. 

“Today, Corey is unfit to participate. For now, it’s an opportunity for those guys to compete.”

Why exactly Crawford has been deemed "unfit" remains to be seen. 

If Crawford can't go for Phase 4 which at this point is likely, it'll be a battle between Subban, Delia and Lankinen.
