TORONTO – It was another loss for the Blackhawks on Wednesday night and another contest in which the team’s captain was not on the ice.
The latter is more concerning for the team for a number of reasons as the second half of the season continues.
Jonathan Toews hasn’t played since January 28, the game before the NHL All-Star Break, as he continues to deal with a non-COVID illness. He’s missed five games as he’s been off the ice with the ailment and has been placed on injured reserve retroactive to February 7.
B.C. cabinet minister says her cancer has returned, but she's 'confident' she will be fine

B.C.'s minister of post-secondary education says she is undergoing chemotherapy after a scan revealed her cancer had returned.
Selina Robinson told the B.C. legislature that she got the news on Jan. 27.
Robinson, who was replaced as the finance minister last month, says she is "confident" that she will be fine, but it was hard to tell her father and children that she has cancer again.
"Some people might want to start talking about what my future looks like here in this place. I am not going anywhere," Robinson said in her speech.
Robinson has previously shared her 2006 diagnosis of a "rare form of intestinal cancer" in a post on social media.
