Playing career

Crawford was drafted 52nd overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the Chicago Blackhawks. Crawford spent his pre-junior career playing for the Midget AAA Gatineau Intrepides, before spending his junior career with the Moncton Wildcats of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Crawford was the goaltender for the Wildcats in the 2003-04 QMJHL playoffs, when they ousted Rimouski OcΓ©anic in the first round. They went on to the President's Cup final, but lost the series to the Gatineau Olympiques. Crawford currently holds the Wildcats record for Best Goals Against Average (2.47 in 2004-05), Most Wins (35 in 2003-04), and is tied with Simon Lajeunesse for Most Shutouts in a season (6 in 2004-05). He was twice named to the QMJHL's second All-Star team (2003-04, 2004-05).

Crawford made his NHL debut with the Chicago Blackhawks on 22 January, 2006 against the Minnesota Wild. He relieved Adam Munro in the third period, made seven saves and did not allow any goals. He had his first career start against the St. Louis Blues on February 2, 2006. He finished the evening with a record of five goals allowed and twenty-nine saves in a 6-5 shootout loss. He recorded his first career win and shut-out against the Anaheim Ducks on March 5, 2008. Crawford also recorded a strong performance against the Detroit Red Wings, stopping 45 of 47 shots in a 3-1 loss on March 11.

The Blackhawks resigned Crawford to a one-year deal on July 21, 2008. Crawford was recalled from the AHL on November 28 to take the place of Nikolai Khabibulin, who was injured two nights earlier. Crawford made his first Stanley Cup Playoffs appearance on May, 24, 2009 in the second period of the Western Conference Finals against the Detroit Red Wings, replacing Cristobal Huet. He stopped six of seven shots, before being replaced by Huet after the second period.
