Dach to miss 4-5 months after undergoing wrist surgery


Kirby Dach will miss approximately four-to-five months after undergoing surgery to repair a right wrist fracture, the Chicago Blackhawks announced Monday.

With the regular season set to take place from Jan. 13 until May 8, Dach’s injury will likely keep him out for most of the campaign.

The Blackhawks forward and captain of Team Canada at this year’s world juniors suffered the injury during Canada’s lone exhibition game against Russia. Bowen Byram and Dylan Cozens will take turns wearing the “C” in games, but Dach remains the team’s official captain.

With the NHL season starting later, the Blackhawks loaned the 19-year-old to Canada for this year’s world juniors. He didn’t participate in last year’s tournament because Dach made the Blackhawks’ roster and spent the majority of the season with the club.

Chicago selected Dach with the third pick in the 2019 draft. He recorded eight goals and 15 assists over 64 games during his rookie season last year.
