Blackhawks Bickell Sidelined With “Significant” Knee Injury

Bickell_Blackhawks_2013Bryan Bickell, who finished second on the team in postseason goals last year, has reportedly suffered a “significant” left knee injury, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The 27-year-old slammed into the net during a 5-1 loss to Colorado on Tuesday midway through the first period, left the game, and didn’t return

Bickell’s been sent back to Chicago for evaluation — the ‘Hawks are on their annual Circus Trip and have six more road dates remaining — and, on Thursday morning, head coach Joel Quenneville said Bickell would be out for at least a couple of weeks.

Chicago has already called up forward Jeremy Morin from AHL Rockford as Bickell’s injury replacement.
