Dach will make his NHL debut on Sunday.

Dach was the No.3 overall pick this summer after collecting 73 points (25G / 48A) in 62 games with the Saskatoon Blades (WHL). Dach failed to register a point in three games with Rockford (AHL) this year but is back to 100 percent health and ready to make his NHL debut vs. Washington. There is no word on who Dach will replace or what line he will skate on.

Crawford will start Monday vs. the Oilers.

Crawford gave up five goals on 34 shots in the Blackhawks loss to the Sharks last Thursday. Robin Lehner started Saturday vs. the Jets, but they will go back to Crawford tonight vs. the Oilers. He has given up a combined nine goals on 72 shots (.875 SV%) in his two starts and the Oilers come in as the second-highest scoring team in the league (4.20 GF/gm) and undefeated (5-0-0).

Lehner will make his Blackhawks debut against the Jets on Saturday.

Corey Crawford started the season opener and the home opener but Lehner will make his Blackhawks debut on Saturday. Lehner was outstanding in 2018-19, going 25-13-5 with a 2.13 GAA, .930 SV% and six shutouts with the Islanders. Chicago is giving up the fifth-most shots per game, so he’ll be much busier with his new team and has a tough matchup vs. a Jets team that is averaging 3.60 goals per game through five games.

Crawford will start Thursday vs. the Sharks.

Crawford allowed four goals on 38 shots in the Blackhawks’ season-opening loss to the Flyers overseas. Back in North America, it looks like Crawford will start the home-opener vs. the Sharks. The 34-year-old netminder was 8-6-4 with a 2.54 GAA, .921 SV% and one shutout on home-ice last year and faces a Sharks team that is off to a dreadful start to the season.

Gilbert has been recalled from Rockford (AHL) and will play in the Blackhawks season opener.

Gilbert was with the Blackhawks in Prague so the “recall” was just a formality. Gilbert was a third-round pick in 2015 and will play in his second career NHL game because Calvin de Haan and Connor Murphy are injured to begin the season. The 22-year-old blueliner had 14 points (5G / 9A) in 63 games in his first AHL season (2018-19).

Crawford will start the Blackhawks season opener against the Flyers.

Crawford has had concussion issues over the last two years, being limited to 27 and 39 starts. During that time, Crawford was tied for 11th in SV% (.917) and 14th in GAA (2.66). This summer they brought in Robin Lehner to share the crease with Crawford, but the Blackhawks veteran will start the season opener in Prague. He was 0-2-0 with a 2.58 GAA and .902 SV% vs. the Flyers last year.
