Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews will miss the remainder of the regular season with an upper-body injury, the team’s head coach Joel Quenneville announced Wednesday.
Toews was hammered by Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman Brooks Orpik in the second period of a 4-1 loss Sunday and was forced to leave the game.
In 76 games this season, Toews has 28 goals, 68 points, 34 penalty minutes and a plus-26 rating.
The Blackhawks will also be without Patrick Kane for their remaining six games of the regular season. The team has already clinched a playoff spot and will likely face the Colorado Avalanche in the first round.
