The Chicago Blackhawks play the St. Louis Blues tonight and after already receiving some tough news it's gotten worse.
Andrew Shaw, Duncan Keith and Robin Lehner were already confirmed not to play tonight and now Dylan Strome has joined the group.
The Hawks used an emergency call up earlier today as they called up goalie Kevin Lankinen.
That's the only move they'll be able to make today because of their salary cap so that means the team won't be able to ice a full roster tonight.
Because of salary cap issues, the Hawks will only be able to dress 11 forwards tonight and six defenseman.
This is strange: #Blackhawks have to play with only 11 forwards and six defensemen tonight due to cap reasons, with Shaw and Strome out.
