Jonathan Toews Injury: Scott Hartnell To Replace Blackhawks Forward On All Star Roster

Philadelphia Flyers forward Scott Hartnell has been tapped to replace Chicago Blackhawks forward Jonathan Toews on the Western Conference's roster for the 2012 NHL All Star Game. Toews was recently placed on the injured reserve by Chicago for a hand injury.

Toews had been one of the NHL's best players this season while leading the Blackhawks, but he appears to have injured his hand during Friday's game against the Florida Panthers. He tried to play the next day against the Nashville Predators but ended up leaving the game. He missed Chicago's most recent game against Nashville on Tuesday.

This is Toews' third All Star selection, but unfortunately he won't be participating in the game. Hartnell will be appearing in his first NHL All Star game.
