Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Jake McCabe will miss 10-12 weeks after undergoing successful cervical spine surgery, the team announced Tuesday.

The current recovery timeline projects McCabe to return between late November and early December. Chicago's 2022 training camp is set to open next week, and its regular season starts Oct. 12 against the defending champion Colorado Avalanche.

McCabe joined the Blackhawks prior to the 2021-22 campaign on a four-year, $16-million contract. He appeared in 75 games and registered 22 points while averaging over 20 minutes per contest in his debut season in the Windy City.

He spent eight seasons with the Buffalo Sabres prior to signing with Chicago.
