Chicago Blackhawks Lose Jonathan Toews to Injury

The Chicago Blackhawks will be without Jonathan Toews for the training camp and at least the beginning of the season as it's being reported the Hawks captain is dealing with health concerns.

As Bob McKenzie points out, there's been a ton of speculation surrounding Toews' health for a few weeks now and the team is expected to make a formal announcement on Tuesday with more information and a better time line.

The Hawks captain appeared in 70 games last year and scored 60 points and added another nine points in nine playoff games. While Chicago is now surprisingly rebuilding, the likes of Toews and the other core players are good enough to take the team to the playoffs.

The Blackhawks are now without Toews and youngster Kirby Dach who broke his wrist at the World Juniors and had surgery on Monday. 

More to come once the Hawks make their announcement.
