CHICAGO, Dec. 10 (UPI) -- Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford has a lower-body injury and will miss about three weeks, Coach Joel Quenneville said Tuesday.

Quenneville didn't specify the injury, but the Chicago Sun-Times reported the goaltender sustained a pulled groin.

Crawford had compiled a 17-6-3 record this season with a 2.47 goals against average.

His starting spot will be assumed by Antti Raanta, who has gone 3-0-1 with a 2.16 GAA.

Goaltender Kent Simpson was recalled from Rockford of the American Hockey League to take Crawford's roster spot due to an injury to regular backup Nikolai Khabibulin.
