Training camps have begun and so, too, have reports of injuries.

Jonathan Toews didn’t take part in the Chicago Blackhawks scrimmage Friday, due to a lower-body injury.

“He practiced (Friday)┬ámorning and precautionary we kept him off for the game,” Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville said Friday, as per the Chicago Tribune.

“It’s not serious. We’ll see how he is (Saturday) and maybe give him a couple of days off the ice. I think it was kind of bugging him before┬ábut he went through everything (Thursday) and (Friday) and felt not bad but we said, ‘let’s be smart about it.'”

Toews captained the Blackhawks to a Stanley Cup championship in June. It’s the second time in the last four years the Blackhawks have won the silver chalice.

Toews, 25, had three goals and 14 points in 23 post-season games.
