The Blackhawks will have their captain in the lineup for Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.

On Monday, Jonathan Toews declared himself fit to return after missing the entire third period of Game 5, saying he felt “100 percent” following today’s morning skate.

Toews does have a history of concussions, the latest of which sidelined him for 22 games last season.
