Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews Will Be Out Two Weeks

Yesterday, Jonathan Toews was slammed hard into the boards by Matt D’Agostini of the Blues. Only a little more than half of the first period had gone by — the Blackhawks were at full strength, with no injured players for the first time all season.

That’s all they got. Today, coach Joel Quenneville announced that Toews will miss a couple of weeks:

Quenneville didn’t say if Toews had an MRI to see if there was structural damage, but sounded confident in the two-week estimate. As for the Hawks staying in the thick of a tight Western Conference race without their on-ice leader, Quenneville said his team must share the burden.

If Toews does miss the full two weeks, he’ll miss seven games. There are only three Blackhawks besides Toews who have played in all 38 games so far this year — Duncan Keith, Troy Brouwer and Brent Seabrook.

The Hawks host the San Jose Sharks on Thursday.
