No Toews for Hawks tonight
Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews will miss Tuesday's game against the Detroit Red Wings (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN) with an upper-body injury.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville told reporters in Chicago that the injury is not related to a wrist injury that sidelined Toews last month, and he is being listed as day-to-day.

Brendan Morrison will play in Toews' place.

Also out for the Hawks is defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson, who will be replaced in the lineup by John Scott.
