from Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune,
The Chicago Blackhawks will be without the services of their captain for at least one game as Jonathan Toews will not play Tuesday night against the Nashville Predators with a suspected left arm injury.
Toews left during the second period of the Hawks’ 5-2 loss to the Predators on Sunday night and did not practice with teammates Monday. Toews was slashed across the left wrist by the Florida Panthers’ Erik Gudbranson during Friday night’s game but did finish that contest.
“Toews is going to be out for (Tuesday’s) game,” Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said following Monday’s practice. “It’s not serious but he’s out.”
Quenneville said it’s “not likely” Toews will participate in the NHL All-Star Game festivities this weekend in Ottawa. Toews was selected to play in Sunday’s game along with teammates Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa.
