Toews scored three goals -- including the overtime winner -- in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

Toews has been on fire to kick off the 2018-19 campaign, scoring four goals and an assist in Chicago's first two games, leading the victory in both. The longtime Blackhawks captain scored just 52 points last year -- his lowest since the 2012-13 lockout-shortened campaign -- so the hot start is a great sign.

Toews scored his third goal of the preseason in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Senators.

EDGE Analysis

Toews has enjoyed a strong exhibition slate ahead of his 12th NHL campaign. Chicago's captain has mustered at least 20 goals in each of his first 11 seasons, and there's little reason to expect Toews to drop below that mark this season.

Toews registered two goals (one on the power play) to complement an assist in Tuesday's 8-6 home loss to the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

Toews snuck in from behind the net for his power-play tally and then the captain deflected a point shot from Jan Rutta for his second goal of the night. His assist was a primary apple to smooth-skating forward prospect Dominik Kahun. Toews will look to revert to form after watching his point total slip to 52 last season, which happened to be his lowest mark since the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign when he actually eclipsed a point-per-game average.

Toews is confident he can return to form offensively this season, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Toews' offensive production has been on a steady decline since he averaged nearly a point-per-game in three straight campaigns starting with the 2010-11 season, but he's confident he can start to reverse that trend in 2018-19. The Blackhawks captain told Powers "There's no doubt I want to get back to being that offensive threat that I know I can be. That's how I like to contribute. Obviously playing well on both sides of the puck, but not neglecting the fact I can be an elite scorer." Whether that's a realistic possibility at this stage in Toews' career remains to be seen, but with Chicago missing the playoffs for the first time since his rookie year, the 30-year-old forward has had more time than he's had in a very long while to train this offseason, which could benefit him in the long run. Either way, the 2006 first-round pick has notched at least 20 goals and 30 assists in five consecutive campaigns, so he'll remain a valuable fantasy asset even if he's unable to improve upon those number in 2018-19.

According to coach Joel Quenneville, Jonathan Toews (upper body) is "totally healthy" and has "been working out just about every day," Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Toews missed the final eight games of the 2017-18 campaign due to an upper-body injury, but his injury was never expected to affect his availability for training camp. The 30-year-old pivot has been extremely consistent over the past three seasons, notching at least 20 goals and 30 assists in each campaign, and will remain a valuable asset in all fantasy formats in 2018-19.

Toews (upper body) won't be in the lineup for Friday's game against the Blues, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Toews participated in line rushes during Friday's morning skate, but the Blackhawks have nothing to play for with two games remaining on their schedule, so it wouldn't be surprising to see them play it safe and shut the 29-year-old pivot down for the season. If that ends up being the case, Toews will finish the campaign having totaled a respectable, albeit slightly disappointing, 20 goals and 52 points in 74 contests.

Toews (upper body) hopes to rejoin the lineup for Friday's game against the Blues, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Blackhawks certainly won't push their star pivot back into action Friday, but Toews seems to be in a decent position to make that return. Expect another update confirming his status on game day.

Per coach Joel Quenneville, Toews (upper body) won't be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blues, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Toews will miss a sixth consecutive game, but it sounds like he's nearly back to 100 percent, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him back in action Friday against St. Louis. With Toews unavailable, David Kampf will likely center one of Chicago's top-two lines Wednesday night.

Toews (upper body) may be available against the Blues on Wednesday, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Toews -- who missed the Blackhawks' previous five outings -- will almost certainly return to the top line, in addition to resuming his role on the power play. For the 11th straight season, the center topped both the 20-goal and 50-point thresholds, but will miss the playoffs for the first time since his rookie campaign in 2007-08.

Toews (upper body) skated with injured teammate John Hayden (upper body) in Chicago on Friday, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Toews' skating session apparently went well, so he could return to action as soon as Wednesday against the Blues. However, with Chicago no longer vying for a playoff birth, there's no reason for the Blackhawks to rush Toews back until he's fully healthy.
