BLOG: de Haan Completes First Full Practice with Blackhawks

Defenseman progresses in recovery from shoulder and groin injuries that held him out of opening days

by Carter Baum @CarterBaum / Blackhawks.com

As a portion of the 55-man Training Camp roster got set to head to Detroit on Tuesday, perhaps the biggest news of the day came from the practice group who wasn't traveling. 

Defenseman Calvin de Haan made his first appearance in a full practice since being acquired by the Blackhawks in June. He's missed the opening days of on-ice sessions as he recovers from shoulder surgery late in the 2018-19 season and a minor groin tweak picked up during offseason training. Right now, he says, it's the groin that's holding him back more so than the shoulder.

BLOG: New Energy Adds to Opening Day Excitement

With 10 new faces and up-and-coming prospects, opening day of Training Camp has new energy for Blackhawks

by Carter Baum @CarterBaum / Blackhawks.com

The systems and drills weren't overly-complicated, the line combinations were continuously shuffled and the first regular-season game is still three weeks away, but the Blackhawks are excited just to be back on the ice.

"I think just getting on the ice, getting on the ice around the guys, for sure there's something to be said for that," defenseman Duncan Keith said. "Definitely that adds to the excitement more than when you're playing a long season that ended two months ago. (But) I'd definitely take that (lesser excitement) over a four-month break."
