How will the ‘Hawks manage without their top center?
Toews has four goals and eight assists in 21 games this season. But, of course, he’s so much more than his point totals.
“Johnny’s importance to our team is immense,” head coach Joel Quenneville said, per the Chicago Sun-Times. “In all situations, the minutes he absorbs and the assignments he gets against him — they’re all important minutes when he’s out on the ice. There’s a lot of ice time and a lot of quality ice time [to fill] if there’s not Johnny Toews in your lineup.”
The Blackhawks also play tomorrow evening against the Kings. No word if Toews will be available by then.
