"We just got inundated," Gilchrist recalls from his home in Victoria, B.C. Emails started to flood in from people all over the world, including England and Sweden, who wanted to come and show their support.

Corey Crawford's status for the Chicago Blackhawks' season opener remains uncertain, but he does appear to be trending in the right direction.

The goaltender is expected to take the ice Friday morning on the club's first day of training camp, a source told The Athletic's Scott Powers on Thursday night.

Crawford last played in late December and reportedly dealt with vertigo-like symptoms before returning to practice in February and ultimately being shut down for the rest of the season.

Chicago's No. 1 netminder said in late July that he still wasn't 100 percent healthy but that he had made progress.
