Toews Out For Remainder Of Season
CHICAGO (AP) — Captain Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks will miss the rest of the regular season with an upper-body injury. Coach Joel Quenneville expects Toews to be “100 percent” for the playoffs.
Toews was injured after a hit by Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik on Sunday night. Toews got up slowly and was seen holding his left arm on the bench before heading to the locker room.
The Blackhawks, who have clinched a playoff berth, are already without star forward Patrick Kane, who is out for the rest of the regular season with a lower-body injury.
