The Chicago Blackhawks have been without captain Jonathan Toews for the last five games and have gone 1-4 and are now in sixth place in the Western Conference. The team needs to stop losing since it is only a few points away from dropping out of playoff contention, but it isn't clear if Toews will be back soon.

The Hawks could get help before the trading deadline comes Monday afternoon, but it is hoping that Toews can return from his upper-body injury, which is "possibly related to concussion symptoms," according to the Chicago Tribune.

"[Toews] is our best player overall," winger Viktor Stalberg said, according to the Tribune. "He does the little things so well [and] … he's missed in the locker room. Hopefully, we'll get him back here soon and it will help make us better."

Chicago takes on the Toronto Maple Leafs Wednesday and coach Joel Quenneville said that it is "undetermined" whether Toews will be ready to go, especially since his star hasn't even started skating again. Toews has scored 29 goals and notched 28 assists this season.
