Blackhawks star Jonathan Toews day to day with upper-body injury

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews has left Chicago's game at Pittsburgh with an apparent upper-body injury.

Toews was drilled by Penguins defenceman Brooks Orpik at 6:30 of the second period on Sunday night. The two were going for a loose puck.

Toews got up slowly and was seen holding his left arm on the bench before heading down the runway.

The Blackhawks, who clinched a playoff berth on Saturday, are already without star forward Patrick Kane, who is out for the rest of the regular season with a lower-body injury.

Toews, who helped lead Canada to Olympic gold medals in 2010 and 2014, has 28 goals and 68 points this season.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
