The road to recovery: Jonathan Toews skates again

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

Blackhawks center Jonathan Toews skated for the second day in a row Wednesday as he continues to recover from a concussion. But it's how he feels Thursday that will tell how far he's come since suffering a setback last week.

"That's kind of the measuring stick everyday," coach Joel Quenneville said before Toews missed his 15th game in row Wednesday against the rival Vancouver Canucks.

"Your body tells you what you're able to do. It's all part of that process. Hopefully, you get consecutive days where you just keep progressing and you get a little bit more everyday. That's kind of where [Toews is] at."

Toews said he felt "kind of like the same he's been" after skating, Quenneville said.

Toews skated four days in a row recently, before his symptoms reached a point to where more rest was needed. Is it possible he pushed himself too much?

"I just think everyday you're trying different things," Quenneville said. "You push your body in different ways and you're testing it to see what you're able to handle be it on or off the ice. That's all part of that process we're talking about."

Defenseman Steve Montador (concussion) also continues to skate as part of his recovery. But he remains on injured reserve. He hasn't played since early February.
