The Chicago Blackhawks have excelled without their captain Jonathan Toews (concussion), but it’s safe to say they would love to have him back for their probable playoff run. Toews has skated for six straight days, but with less than two weeks remaining before the end of the regular season, it’s not clear when he’ll take the next step.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville hopes that Toews will be cleared for contact “soon,” but he added that it hasn’t been discussed yet.

Meanwhile, Steve Montador, who is also out with a concussion, has been given the green light to participate in contact drills. Quenneville is looking to “get him some more contact this week.” Of course, there’s no guarantee that Montador will return before the end of the regular season, but he is hoping to make that happen.
