After sitting out yesterday against Detroit, Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews will also miss tomorrow’s home game versus Dallas.

The ‘Hawks are calling it an upper-body injury, which predictably has reporters asking if it’s a concussion.

“It’s upper body, we’ll leave it at that,” said coach Joel Quenneville, as reported by Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times.

However, a source tells ChicagoNow.com that Toews’ injury is indeed a concussion, and another source says it was suffered against the San Jose Sharks on Feb. 10.

If that’s the case, it raises the question, did Toews play five games with a concussion?

It’s worth noting that this wouldn’t be his first concussion. He missed six games in 2009-10 after being hit (spectacularly) by Willie Mitchell.

    Get well soon, Towes. You make the game better – you’ll be missed

    This is scary. Hope all precautions are being taken and he comes back when he is healthy. Hockey will for sure miss him.
