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 on-ice 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.
