«We're hoping after that six-week mark (after surgery), so that will be a week from today, I guess.

I think they just thought everything was on course, so I think maybe later in the week or early next week is probably when they're targeting for hopefully the last one,» he said. «They just said it was useless to take another image with radiation. Everything was on pace and looks to be on the same timeline that they thought.»

Bedard's absence has been missed for the Chicago Blackhawks and the NHL as a whole. We cannot wait to see the young Canadian phenom back at it again.

More details to come.
