Jonathan Toews may return to Chicago Blackhawks lineup before playoffs

Published on April 1, 2012 by   ·   No Comments

The Chicago Blackhawks may have clinched the playoffs with Saturday’s 5-4 win over the Nashville Predators, but they may see a boost in the lineup regardless of the lack of need.

Jonathan Toews will reportedly rejoin his teammates for the last game of the season, reports.

From the league:

“We’re hopeful that maybe we can get him in before the end of the season,” Quenneville said on Saturday morning of Toews’ potential return.

Asked for an update after the game Quenneville said, “He’s fine, he’s doing good” while confirming Toews had been cleared for contact.

Toews is also cleared for contact for team practice. He’s missed action since suffering a concussion Feb. 19, and has been on an extended timeline for return. In all, he’s missed 19 games because of the concussion.

In that time, the Blackhawks have gone 12-5-2 without their captain.

To cap the season, the Blackhawks will take on the Minnesota Wild for a home-away series before going to Detroit to play the Red Wings.
