The Chicago Blackhawks had an extremely disappointing 2017-18 season and most agree that the Corey Crawford's injury and lack of proper backup was the reason. 

When Crawford was in nets the team looked fine, while he was sidelined it was disastrous.

There's been plenty of speculation regarding his situation heading into training and no real straight answer from management, however now it looks like we might finally have some good news. 

General manager Stan Bowman said recently that Crawford "should be ready to go" according to the Daily Herald while president and CEO John McDonough said the team was "optimistic" Crawford would be participating in training camp. 

Crawford has been on injured reserve since December 27th and stated he wasn't yet 100% during the Blackhawks convention in July. 

Fingers crossed.
