Hawks' Toews removed from NHL's COVID-19 protocol


Jonathan Toews was removed from the NHL's COVID-19 protocol and will be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Blackhawks announced before warmups. He skated on a line with Ryan Carpenter and Brandon Hagel.

Toews was placed in the protocol on Tuesday and did not practice with the team. He also didn't participate in Wednesday's morning skate.

Chicago's captain is coming off a two-assist performance in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Detroit Red Wings. He went pointless in his first five games.

Henrik Borgstrom, Patrick Kane, Jujhar Khaira and Riley Stillman remain in the protocol, along with assistant coaches Marc Crawford and Tomas Mitell and goaltending coach Jimmy Waite.
