Jonathan Toews is out for tonight’s game against the Detroit Red Wings with an upper body injury. He’s listed as day-to-day. Brendan Morrison is in the lineup tonight. (@NHLBlackhawks)
Also out for tonight’s game? Pavel Datsyuk, who is out for at least two weeks after having knee surgery. This makes me feel just a little better about Toews being out of the lineup, honestly. (Hockeytown Beat)
The Blackhawks have traded Rockford IceHogs captain Brandon Segal to the Lightning in exchange for “future considerations” — also known as Norfolk Admirals RW/C Matt Fornataro. (@ChrisKuc) The IceHogs are all but eliminated from AHL playoff contention for a second straight year, so expect more minor-league trades to come soon.
