Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews is still dealing with the effects of a concussion he suffered in February. Toews said on Friday that he will miss the regular season finale against the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday. According to Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune, the concussion symptoms only bother Toews when he is on the ice.
