A mystery has finally been solved. 

Corey Crawford has been missing from Chicago Blakchawks training camp Phase 3 and was simply labelled "unfit to practice". 

With Crawford's various injury history not many people knew what designation meant however the goalie revealed why he'd been missing. 

On Saturday while talking to reports, Crawford announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19 and was battling the virus over the last while. 

He's ready to go now though after battling what he described as "flu like symptoms" and added he doesn't usually skate during the summer so ramping up for play shouldn't be a problem. 

He becomes the second big name after Auston Matthews to confirm he battle the virus.
