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.
