Toews (upper-body) did not practice on Monday; questionable to play on Tuesday.
Toews has missed the last two games and it appears as if he is in danger of missing No.3 tomorrow vs. Florida. If Toews can get on the ice for the pre-game skate, he could return, so monitor his status on Tuesday morning.
Toews (upper-body) is questionable for Friday’s game in Anaheim.
Toews left Wednesday’s game in San Jose with an upper-body injury and did not return. Toews is listed as questionable and with the early start, the Blackhawks won’t have a morning skate, so monitor his status a few hours before puck-drop and during warmups at 3:30 p.m. ET.
Toews will not play Tuesday due to one-game suspension for skipping the All-Star Game.
Toews is battling an illness that kept him out of the All Star game and Monday’s practice. He will automatically miss Tuesday’s game due to a one-game suspension for missing the All-Star game but his status remains up in the air for the remainder of the week.
Toews left Thursday’s game after being hit from behind by Dennis Seidenberg. Toews said he was fine after the hit and passed all concussion protocol that night, but was held out as a precaution. He will be in the lineup tonight vs. the Isles. Toews has 23 points (11G / 12A) in 29 games.
Toews left Thursday's game after being hit from behind and did not return.
Toews was hit head-first into the end-board by Bruins' blueliner Dennis Seidenberg. Toews was shaken up and left the game late in the second period. Seidenberg was assessed a two-minute minor on the play, but is expected to avoid suspension. “We’ll see how he is tomorrow,” Coach Joel Quenneville told reporters. “Looks like he’s going to be all right.”
The Blackhawks signed Jonathan Toews to an eight-year, $84 million dollar contract extension.
The Blackhawks signed Patrick Kane to the exact same contract. The ,deal does not kick in until the 2015-16 season, but the annual cap-hit will make them the highest paid players in the NHL. When Toews and Kane joined the Blackhawks they had not reached the Finals since 1992, but since drafting Toews (third overall) in 2006 they have won two Stanley Cups and reached the Western Conference Final on two other occasions. Toews had 28 goals and 40 assists (68 points) with a plus-26 rating in 76 games last season. Toews has scored on a 74.5 point per 82 game pace in the first seven years of his career. He is one of the most reliable centres in the league and should be a top-15 pick in fantasy drafts next season.
Toews (upper-body) said he will "absolutely" be ready for game 1 on Thursday.
The Blackhawks decided to sit Toews the rest of the regular season and make sure he was fit for the playoffs. ‘’I don’t feel like I lost anything,’’ Toews said. Toews generally is one of the last players to worry about making that adjustment. In 2012 he missed the final 22 games of the regular season with a concussion, then scored a goal 4:04 into the Hawks’ playoff opener against the Phoenix Coyotes. Toews was a plus-4 in the first two games of that series. If anything, it’ll be up to Toews’ teammates to follow his lead.
