“I’m feeling good,” Sharp told Blackhawks television analyst Eddie Olczyk as his teammates began the first practice of the season. “I’m lucky we have such great doctors. Wish I could get out here with the guys right now.”

Sharp was having stomach pains at a team golf outing before heading to the hospital to get checked out. He was operated on immediately. His recovery is expected to take about a month.

“As soon as possible,” Sharp said. “The timeline is three to four weeks. I don’t want to miss any games so I’m pushing to play in that first game of the season.”

The Blackhawks began training camp Saturday and open the season Oct. 7 in Dallas.

Sharp led the team with 34 goals and had a career-high 71 points last season.
