Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews lands in COVID-19 protocol
(670 The Score) The Blackhawks’ troubles keep growing.
Center Jonathan Toews and center Henrik Borgstrom on Tuesday were both placed in COVID-19 protocol and won’t practice. That increases the number of Blackhawks in the protocols to five players – including star winger Patrick Kane – and three coaches.
COVID-19 protocol-related absences can be the result of a player tested positive for the virus or being deemed a high-risk close contact.
Toews has two points (zero goals, two assists) in six games this season. Borgstrom has two points (one goal, one assist) in six games as well.
The Blackhawks are off to an abysmal 0-5-1 start in which they haven’t led at any point in their first six games. They host the Maple Leafs on Wednesday at the United Center.
