The Chicago Blackhawks recently announced that rookie defenseman Kevin Korchinski took some time away from the team and many wondered why. We now have an answer, and it includes some awful news for the Korchinski family.

Chicago Blackhawks Star Rookie Kevin Korchinski Gets Some Awful News



The Saskatoon Blades announced last Friday that Larry Korchinski, who played for the WHL team, had passed away. He is the father of Kevin Korchinski.

We're devastated to hear of the passing of Saskatoon Blades alumnus, Larry Korchinski.


On behalf of the entire Saskatoon Blades organization, we give our deepest condolences to the Korchinski family. Once a Blade, always a Blade 💙


The entire Chicago Blackhawks squad attended Korchinski's funeral on Friday, which is a fantastic gesture on behalf of his teammates.

Connor Murphy: "It's unimaginable what him and his family are going through. We were really fortunate to be with them there yesterday. For us to get closer and for them to feel our love, that we're there for them, is most important."


The 7th overall pick in 2022 has played in 25 games this season and is making a name for himself. The 19 year old stud defenseman has 2 goals and 7 assists and doesn't look out of place on a rebuilding squad playing against men.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.
