KANATA, Ont. -- Chicago Blackhawks
coach Joel Quenneville
said Friday that he doubts team captain Jonathan Toews
will join the team at any point during its road trip, which after Friday's game in Ottawa goes to Detroit and St. Louis.
Toews will miss his sixth straight game Friday with an upper-body injury. He's back in Chicago taking part in off-ice workouts, but has yet to skate.
"Right now I don't want to get anyone excited," Quenneville said. "We'll just say, 'We'll see.' We're hopeful. To give you a better idea, until we get him on the ice, we'll know more."
