Patrick Kane is likely on the move, but what about Jonathan Toews? Well, he is remaining in Chicago, but regrettably due to health issues, according to a statement from the Chicago Blackhawks and Jonathan Toews.

Official statement from Jonathan Toews:

First of all, thank you to the fans and all those who have shown concern about my absence. I'm still dealing with the symptoms of Long COVID and Chronic Immune Response Syndrome.
It has been really challenging to play through these symptoms. In the last few weeks, it has reached the point where I had no choice but to step back and concentrate on getting healthy. I am thankful for the patience and support of my teammates, the coaching staff, and the entire Blackhawks organization.

More news was released from the Blackhawks Frank Seravalli:

Breaking: Sources say #Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews will not be moved prior to the #NHL trade deadline.I'm told Toews and Chicago made a joint decision as he needs more time to recover from his latest illness. He hasn't played since Jan. 28.

Most importantly for Toews, there does not appear to be any major long-term health concerns and it's possible Toews could return to the lineup in March. But out of fairness to other teams, Toews felt his body was not cooperating to compete at a high level right now.

Health over hockey, we are all praying for a speedy recovery for you Toews!


DO YOU THINK KANE WILL FOLLOW TOEWS' STEPS AND STAY IN CHICAGO?
