NextImg:Connor Bedard placed on injured reserve with fractured jaw as Blackhawks’ woes escalate

Connor Bedard was placed on injured reserve with a fractured jaw on Saturday, representing the latest piece of bad news to a Blackhawks season laden with it.

The star rookie will likely miss somewhere in the range of four-to-six weeks due to the injury. Blue Jackets forward Boone Jenner suffered a fractured jaw Dec. 8 and was ruled out for six weeks; he coincidentally returned to practice Saturday.

Bedard was leveled by Devils forward Brendan Smith in the Hawks’ 4-2 loss Friday and left the ice holding his face.

Later in the game, Nick Foligno picked up an injury of his own while fighting Smith, trying to avenge Bedard. Foligno was also placed on injured reserve Saturday with a fractured finger, decimating the Hawks’ forward corps even further.

The Hawks are now missing eight NHL forwards due to injury: Taylor Hall (out for the season after ACL surgery), Andreas Athanasiou (out since Nov. 9 with a groin injury), Joey Anderson (out since Dec. 17 with an injury to his left shoulder), Taylor Raddysh (groin), Tyler Johnson (right foot), Anthony Beauvillier (left wrist), Foligno and Bedard.
