Toews scored his third goal of the season in Thursday's loss to the Wild. He's started the season with a five-game point streak.

EDGE Analysis

After posting his lowest goal total in three seasons in 2016-17, Toews has gotten off to a hot start this year, racking up six points through five contests. The top-line center has been reunited with former teammate Brandon Saad and is playing with tons of ferocity that makes him seem destined for a bounce-back campaign. Toews is already a must-own fantasy commodity, but if he returns to his 30-goal potential, that's an even bigger plus for his fantasy owners.

Toews (lower body) participated in line rushes during morning skate, indicating he'll be in the lineup for Thursday's regular-season opener against Pittsburgh, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Toews sustained a minor lower-body injury during the Blackhawks' final exhibition contest, but he was never expected to miss Thursday's game. The 29-year-old pivot will center the Blackhawks' first line and top power-play unit against the Penguins.

Toews suffered a lower-body injury Saturday against the Penguins, but is expected to be fine, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

It wouldn't be surprising if Toews was held out of some of Saturday's preseason finale as a precaution given coach Quenneville's comments on the matter. Regardless, the team should update its captain's status ahead of Thursday's preseason opener against the Penguins.

Toews (illness) chipped in a goal in Saturday's 3-2 loss to Columbus.

EDGE Analysis

Captain Serious was forced to miss practice Sept. 21, but as expected, the illness was nothing serious. In addition to the goal, Toews put five shots on goal, played nearly five minutes on special teams, and won 68% of his draws.

Toews (illness) won't play Thursday against Detroit, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

There's no indication that this ailment will keep Toews sidelined for long, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him return to action Saturday against the Blue Jackets. The 29-year-old pivot focused less on bulking up and more on improving his speed this offseason, a change that could help him crack the 65-point mark for the first time since 2014-15 this campaign.

Toews will not travel to Europe for the 2017 IIHF World Championship, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Blackhawks' captain notched 58 points for the second straight season (21 goals, 37 assists). Toews wasn't good down the stretch though, scoring one goal and one assist in four playoff games, yet finishing with a minus-5 rating.

Toews scored Chicago's lone goal in Thursday's 4-1 Game 4 loss to the Predators.

EDGE Analysis

Toews had gone 12 playoff games without a goal coming in, and this contribution was too little too late with Nashville having already established a 3-0 lead in both the series and this game. The captain was far from the only underachieving member of the Blackhawks, who scored just three goals in four games after entering the postseason as the top seed in the Western Conference.

Toews picked up his first goal in nine games in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

Toews has 58 points, including 21 goals; his total matches his output from last season. He's a dominant player whose offensive totals will always be somewhat depressed because of his commitment to a two-way game. But big-game Toews will deliver in the postseason at close to a point-per-game. The Hawks could see June, so target Toews in playoff formats.

Toews (rest) won't be in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Ducks, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Blackhawks have secured the top seed in the Western Conference, so it makes sense for them to rest key players like Toews instead of risking injury in what are essentially meaningless games. Toews may return to the lineup for Chicago's final regular-season contest Saturday against the Kings, but if he doesn't, he'll be ready to go for Game 1 of the playoffs.
