Sharp to sit again for Blackhawks

CHICAGO -- Patrick Sharp will sit out again on Monday night when the Chicago Blackhawks host the Los Angeles Kings at United Center.

Sharp didn't dress for Sunday's 2-0 victory at St. Louis. He had played in Chicago's previous two games against Minnesota and Detroit after missing 14 games with an upper-body injury.

"He's out," coach Joel Quenneville said. "We expect him on the ice [for a workout Tuesday], so we'll say day-to-day."

The Blackhawks have already locked up the Central Division title; next up is assuring themselves of first place in the Western Conference before the playoffs start at the end of April.

Quenneville said he's not worried about Sharp getting enough action to be ready for the playoffs.

"I think there's enough time to get ready, be it practice or … he'll be skating," he said. "There should be ample time to get going."

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
