Jonathan Toews: Won't play next season
Toews announced on Instagram that he won't play in 2023-24.
Toews has battled health issues related to long COVID over the last few seasons and wants to take some time to focus on getting better. However, he's not retiring and still might return in 2024-25. The 35-year-old had 15 goals and 31 points in 53 contests with Chicago last year. Toews entered the summer as an unrestricted free agent after completing his eight-year, $84 million contract....

Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews: Scores one more goal with Chicago
Toews found the back of the net in Chicago's 5-4 overtime loss to Philadelphia on Thursday.
Toews' marker came on the power play and reduced Philadelphia's lead to 4-3 midway through the second period. Ultimately, the Blackhawks still lost the game and they were long since eliminated from the playoff race, making Chicago's season finale moot from that perspective. Even with the goal, Toews' 15 tallies and 31 points in 53 contests in 2022-23 represents a far cry from the sort of numbers the 34-year-old produced in his prime. Even still, it was a goal to remember, because it was likely his last with the Blackhawks. Chicago general manager Kyle Davidson has already announced that the team doesn't plan to re-sign Toews this summer. The veteran forward has 372 goals and 883 points in 1,067 career appearances with the Blackhawks, and he played a key role in their Stanley Cup championships in 2010, 2013 and 2015.... See More ...

He had previously announced on Feb. 21 that he was stepping away to deal with the effects of long COVID and Chronic Immune Response Syndrome, which caused him to miss the entire 2020-21 season. Toews looked out of sync early, but seemed to get better over the course of the game. It remains to be seen how much he can contribute over the rest of the season.... See More ... See Less
Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews: Set to return Saturday
Toews (illness) will play Saturday versus New Jersey, Blackhawks coach Luke Richardson told Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago.
Toews hasn't played since Jan. 28 because of "long-COVID-19" symptoms. He has 14 goals and 28 points in 46 contests this season.

Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews: Lands on retroactive IR
Toews (illness) was placed on injured reserve by the Hawks on Wednesday retroactive to Feb. 7, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Toews was already expected to be sidelined giant the Leafs on Wednesday, so his IR designation won't impact when he can return to the lineup. Max Domi figures to continue holding down the first-line center role while Toews is on the shelf while Jason Dickinson steps into the second line. Toews lingering illness concerns could limit Chicago's ability to move him at the deadline as has been widely suspected. If Toews doesn't get traded, he will hit the open market during the offseason.... See More ... See Less

Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews: Nets power-play marker in return
Toews scored a power-play goal on two shots in Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Oilers.
Toews saw just 15:23 of ice time in the loss, down from his season average of 17:59 entering the contest.

The veteran center has 14 tallies, 28 points (11 on the power play), 79 shots on net, 37 PIM and a minus-24 rating through 46 outings.... See More ... See Less
