CHICAGO - Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews missed his fourth straight game because of concussion-like symptoms, sitting out Friday night against Montreal.

Toews hasn't resumed skating after a crushing open-ice hit from Vancouver's Willie Mitchell on Oct. 21. Toews is listed as day-to-day.

"The progress hasn't been exactly where we wanted it," Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. "There's been some progress, but at the same time, we're just waiting to see."

After Friday, the Blackhawks don't play again until Thursday night at Phoenix, followed by a game the next night at Colorado.

Quenneville said Toews will make the trip with the team.

"We've got the weekend here and a couple of days next week," Quenneville said. "Hopefully we can get him back on the ice and back out there."

Toews, in his third NHL season, has a goal and four assists in nine games. Last season, the 21-year-old centre had a team-high 34 goals, and added 35 assists.
