Blackhawks Injury Update: Van Riemsdyk will be out "for a while"

By on 11/17/2014 10:25:00 AM

The Chicago Blackhawks have lost promising rookie defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk who sustained a left-leg injury in Sunday night's 6-2 win in Dallas. According to CSNChicago, the 23-year-old will be, "out for some time" as his status will be further evaluated today.

Van Riemsdyk was injured early in the first period when he blocked a scorching shot off the stick of Stars defenseman Trevor Daley. After getting off the ice, he headed to the locker room, appeared to be in significant pain and did not return. The Blackhawks are expected to recall a defenseman from the AHL Rockford IceHogs to fill the void.

Van Riemsdyk is in his first season with Chicago and to this point, had started every game.
