Sharp left Wednesday's 3-2 home win over the Avalanche with what looked like a shoulder injury after being checked along the boards by Colorado's Ryan O'Byrne. Coach Joel Quenneville said afterward Sharp might miss some time.
The Blackhawks also said Marian Hossa was travelling with the team after being scratched from Wednesday's game with an upper body injury, as was Andrew Shaw after taking an elbow to the chin from Paul Stastny.
Michael Frolik (illness) was expected to meet the team in Denver before Friday's game.
The Blackhawks also recalled forward Brandon Bollig from the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League.
When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
