ST. LOUIS (AP) - Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews was injured in the first period against the St. Louis Blues and won't return to the game.

It isn't clear exactly when Toews was hurt Tuesday night. The Blackhawks say Toews has an undisclosed upper body injury.

Toews had two shots and played nearly six minutes. He is Chicago's second-leading scorer with 33 points - including 15 goals.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
