Toews could return next week for Hawks
NASHVILLE – Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said captain Jonathan Toews skated again Saturday and he might be able to return to action in the next week.
Toews skated at home in Chicago on Saturday, as he did not make the team’s trip for the game with the Predators.
“We’re hopeful that maybe we can get him in before the end of the season,” Quenneville said.
Asked if Toews had been cleared for contact, Quenneville at first responded in the affirmative but then said he was “not positive.”
Here is Chicago's projected lineup:
Andrew Brunette - Patrick Kane - Marian Hossa
Patrick Sharp - Marcus Kruger - Viktor Stalberg
Bryan Bickell - Dave Bolland - Andrew Shaw
Brandon Bollig - Jamal Mayers - Michael Frolik
Niklas Hjalmarsson - Brent Seabrook
Johnny Oduya - Nick Leddy
Sean O’Donnell - Dylan Olsen
Corey Crawford
Ray Emery
Quote of the Day

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
