Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews Frustrated With This Season in Chicago

Jonathan Toews wasn't sure what the 2021-22 season would bring after an entire year away from hockey. While he knew it would be a grind to get back to the type of success he was enjoying before his illness, the Chicago Blackhawks captain is frustrated and not satisfied with how things are going this season.

Toews recently spoke to the media and opened up about what he's experiencing so far this season:

I'm definitely not satisfied or happy with where (my game) is at. Just got to keep working and stay patient and try to build up more energy, more pace, more speed on the ice. It's been a while since I've seen a puck go in, obviously. Definitely like scoring goals. So I'd like to get going in that area. Just got to keep working through it. I'm not really sure what else to say at this point. Mentally, I feel confident with the puck and feel like I can make plays, and there's just times when you can't take chances.

The Blackhawks are struggling this season, currently sitting at 6-11-2. Toews hasn't scored in 19 games so far this season and has recorded eight assists. Certainly a slump he's not used to and you can't blame him for being frustrated.

Here's the Blackhawks/Flames highlights from Tuesday night as the struggles continue for Chicago:
