The Chicago Blackhawks were given another tough blow yesterday with a key player missing from practice. 

Yesterday it was captain Jonathan Toews turn to be deemed "unfit to practice" and wasn't anywhere to be seen. 

There was no update regarding Toews yesterday as per NHL return to play protocol however head coach Jeremy Colliton gave a hint. 

During a radio appearance on Thursday morning, Colliton said that he expects Toews to be suited up and ready to go for practice on Thursday. 

We'll wait and see if it happens.
