ST. LOUIS — Patrick Kane is set to return from his ankle injury Tuesday against the Blues. “I’m pretty excited and pretty happy about it,” Kane said following the Hawks’ morning skate at the Scottrade Center. “Skating and everything, shooting and everything, it’s pretty fine. We’ll see how it is during the game. Right now,
Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane said it’s “probable” that he returns Tuesday from his ankle injury against the St. Louis Blues. That’s just more good news for the Hawks, who got a boost Sunday against the Blue Jackets when Marian Hossa came back from his lower-body injury. If Kane’s in the lineup, the Hawks will be

The most disconcerting development on the Blackhawks injury front Saturday was that Patrick Kane did not finish practice. The good news is that Marian Hossa did, and he sounded more encouraged by his progress afterward. Still, neither will play Sunday against the Los Angeles Kings. Viktor Stalberg (head) is also out.
Ryan Johnson, the newest Blackhawk, is a tough one. The Hawks officially added Johnson, a seasoned shot-blocker who played through broken bones in each foot last regular season with the rival Vancouver Canucks, to their mix Friday with a one-year, $500,000 deal.
