Chicago Blackhawks say captain Jonathan Toews out until playoffs

CHICAGO - Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews will miss the rest of the regular season with an upper-body injury.

The team said Wednesday that coach Joel Quenneville expects Toews to be "100 per cent" for the playoffs.

Toews was injured after a hit by Penguins defenceman Brooks Orpik on Sunday night. Toews got up slowly and was seen holding his left arm on the bench before heading to the locker room.

The Blackhawks, who have clinched a playoff berth, are already without star forward Patrick Kane, who is out for the rest of the regular season with a lower-body injury. Toews has 28 goals and 68 points this season.

Quenneville said Andrew Shaw will get some of Toews' "quality ice time," but the team has also recalled forward Joakim Nordstrom from Rockford.
