Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews skated today for the first time since missing eight games with a concussion, according to ESPN Chicago.
"He had a good skate today," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. "He felt good. It's very exciting for us to see him back out here."
Toews hasn't played for the Blackhawks since Feb. 19; the team has gone 4-4 in his absence. At the moment, there's still no timetable for the star center's return, but Quenneville is confident Toews is progressing. Toews has 29 goals and 28 assists on the season for the Blackhawks, who currently sit sixth in the Western Conference with 79 points. They play the East-leading New York Rangers tonight.
