Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville updated the media on the condition of forward Andrew Ladd on Thursday at Cup Final media day, saying that Ladd is listed as day-to-day.
Ladd spoke with the NHL Network as well, telling them the same news. He hasn't skated just yet but hopes to hit the ice on Friday, and if so, he'll be in the lineup for Game 1. Ladd left the ice early in Game 4 against the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference Finals.
Quenneville said earlier this week that Ladd would play in the series. That's still likely, and the only question remains when exactly he'll play.
