CHICAGO (AP) Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford is set for his season debut after missing the final part of last year due to a concussion.

Coach Joel Quenneville says Crawford will start Thursday night against the Arizona Coyotes. Quenneville says "it'll be a fun situation for the guys" having Crawford back in the net.

It's the first game for the two-time All-Star since Dec. 23. He went 16-9-2 with a 2.27 goals-against average last season before he was placed on injured reserve. The 33-year-old Crawford faced some shots during a morning skate in Arizona on Feb. 12, but was never able to come back.
