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.
