Chicago Blackhawks star forward Patrick Kane has been removed from the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol and is expected to play against the visiting Ottawa Senators on Monday.
Kane has missed Chicago’s last four games after being placed in protocol on Oct. 23.
The winless Blackhawks certainly could use the boost after limping out to an 0-7-2 record to start the season.
Kane, 32, has recorded five points (one goal, four assists) in five games this season. The former Hart Trophy recipient has 1,093 points (405 goals, 688 assists) in 1,034 career games since being selected by Chicago with the top overall pick of the 2007 NHL Draft.
Assistant coach Tomas Mitell and video coach Matt Meacham were also removed from protocol on Monday.
