Chicago Blackhawks Rumors: Huge Update on Toews Trade

The Chicago Blackhawks and captain Jonathan Toews released a joint statement on Sunday as Toews continues to battle an illness and provided an update on the current state of his health.

With the news, the Blackhawks of course, will not be moving Toews ahead of the March 3 trade deadline. How this impacts Patrick Kane's decision remains to be seen. Both players grew frustrated with management last season as they decided to change their direction and start a full rebuild.

Toews is in the final season of his current contract and is a pending unrestricted free agent this summer. The 34-year-old has appeared in 46 games this season, recording 28 points.
