Goaltender Corey Crawford could join the Chicago Blackhawks during their road trip after the All-Star break.

"It's something we're discussing, a possibility," coach Joel Quenneville said Wednesday.

Crawford hasn't played since Dec. 23 because of an upper-body injury. He was removed during the first period of a 4-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils and was placed on injured reserve Dec. 27. He also was out the first week of December because of a lower-body injury.

The Blackhawks return from the All-Star break with a game at the Nashville Predators on Jan. 30, and then play at the Vancouver Canucks on Feb. 1 and at the Calgary Flames on Feb. 3.
