MILWAUKEE -- It hasn't come about in a way the Blackhawks would've preferred, but Lukas Reichel now has an easier path to make the Hawks' opening-night NHL roster.

Entering the final week of the preseason -- after the Hawks lost 3-0 to the Wild at Milwaukee's Fiserv Forum on Sunday -- the roster battle on the forward side now looks more interesting.

 

Boris Katchouk will miss the next four to six weeks due to a left ankle sprain, the team announced Sunday, opening up his spot to challengers until at least November. Fellow depth forward Jujhar Khaira is also day-to-day with a right ankle injury.
