Blackhawks put captain Jonathan Toews on injured reserve with left wrist injury

CHICAGO – Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews has been placed on injured reserve because of a left wrist injury.

The Blackhawks made the move Tuesday.

Toews did not play in the third period of last Saturday’s game at Nashville and will miss Tuesday night’s rematch with the Predators—the Blackhawks’ final game before the all-star Break. Toews, who has 27 goals and 23 assists in 49 games, will also miss the all-star game in Ottawa.
