The news is grim for Corey Crawford. According to a report from Mark Lazerus, the Hawks goaltender could miss the rest of the season with "vertigo-like symptoms".

Crawford was placed on Injured Reserve (IR) on Dec. 27, and the injury was never disclosed by the team. He was also placed on IR in early December, and returned a week later. The 33-year-old missed four weeks during the 2015-16 season with a similar ailment, according to the report.

Crawford has a 16-9-2 record and a .929 save percentage this season, and the Hawks need him for their playoff push.
