Eager's back; Toews is still out

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Ben Eager, who has been nursing concussion-like symptoms since Oct. 4, skated with the Blackhawks for a full practice on Sunday, though his status for game duty remained uncertain. Coach Joel Quenneville it'd be ``overly optimistic'' to expect Eager to be ready for the next game -- on Thursday at Phoenix. Jonathan Toews didn't practice, and he's been off the ice since taking a hard hit from Vancouver's Willie Mitchell on Oct. 21. Though some thing Andrew Ladd will be suspended for his hit on Montreal's Matt D'Agostini in Friday's game, neither Ladd nor coach Joel Quenneville had heard from the NHL office on that matter as of Sunday and both insisted Ladd's hit was a clean one.
