from Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times,
As he lay crumpled on the ice following a devastating hit by Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik, Jonathan Toews uttered something apparently unprintable, got to his feet and skated off to the bench, clutching his left arm with his right. He sat on the bench, hunched over in pain a couple of times, then got up again and left for the dressing room.
The question now is, when will he come back?
Already without one of the top offensive players in the world in Patrick Kane, the Blackhawks might have lost one of the most irreplaceable players in the world, too. Toews left the Hawks’ 4-1 loss to the Penguins with about 6:30 left in the second period, and didn’t return.
Hawks coach Joel Quenneville deemed him “day to day,” but said he’d know more on Monday.
“I don’t think it’s serious,” he said.
