This isn't the first time this season the Blackhawks have dealt with a top forward recovering from a left wrist injury.

During the summer, Patrick Kane underwent surgery to repair a scaphoid fracture to his wrist that was aggravated during offseason training. Now the Hawks are without fellow winger Patrick Sharp, who has a wrist injury that isn't as serious as Kane's but one that will keep him sidelined for at least another two weeks.

If Sharp is seeking advice on how to recover from an injury to a body part so vital to his scoring touch, he doesn't need to look farther than a few stalls away in the Hawks' dressing room.
