Blackhawks Vs. Blue Jackets: Jonathan Toews Briefly Leaves Game With Apparent Head Injury

Bad news is starting to pile up for the Blackhawks, who recently lost Patrick Sharp for up to a month. In the first period of Tuesday night's game against last place Columbus, a Duncan Keith shot was deflected and hit Jonathan Toews in the head. Toews had to leave the ice and go to the locker room at that point.

The trainer who accompanied Toews into the locker room returned to the bench to discuss the situation with Joel Quenneville, though Toews was no where to be seen. Fortunately, Toews did eventually return to the bench after that point and got back on the ice for the Blackhawks. The shot appeared to catch him in the helmet, which no doubt helped prevent a more serious injury.
