(670 The Score) The Blackhawks have set their 22-man opening night roster and as expected, goalie Corey Crawford will remain on injured reserve to start the season.

The Blackhawks are eyeing Oct. 18 as a return date for Crawford, who suffered a concussion last December that kept him out for the rest of the season.

Additionally, defenseman Connor Murphy and defenseman Gustav Forsling will begin with an injured non-roster designation. 

Here's the full roster:

Forwards: Artem Anisimov, Alex DeBrincat, John Hayden, Luke Johnson, Dominik Kahun, David Kampf, Patrick Kane, Marcus Kruger, Chris Kunitz, Andreas Martinsen, Brandon Saad, Nick Schmaltz and Jonathan Toews

Defensemen: Brandon Davidson, Erik Gustafsson, Henri Jokiharju, Duncan Keith, Brandon Manning, Jan Rutta and Brent Seabrook

Goaltenders: Anton Forsberg and Cam Ward

Chicago opens the regular season at Ottawa on Thursday evening.
