Shocking injury news provided by the Chicago Blackhawks

Published December 8, 2023 at 8:42 PM

In a surprising twist, there's positive injury news for the Chicago Blackhawks as Andreas Athanasiou is getting closer to coming back on the ice. Head coach Luke Richardson shared the update through The Athletic's Mark Lazerus.

Richardson mentioned that Athanasiou is doing well in his recovery and is almost ready to start skating again. This is a good sign for the 29-year-old forward, who's been out with a groin injury since November 9th.

Athanasiou's quick recovery is a pleasant surprise, considering earlier expectations of a longer absence. Last season, he had a great run, scoring 20 goals and 40 points, making his absence felt in the Blackhawks lineup.

While fans are optimistic about his comeback, there's also a reminder to be cautious and not rush him back too soon. The team will likely prioritize Athanasiou's overall health, making sure his return aligns with his recovery progress.

As Athanasiou works to bounce back from his injury, Blackhawks fans are looking forward to updates on when he'll be back in action and the positive impact he can bring to the team.
