When I heard Blackhawks Captain Jonathan Toews was involved in a car crash this morning, I have to admit my heart plummeted a bit. He’s so young, a great leader, one hell of a hockey player, and not to mention easy on the eyes. LUCKILY, Toews was not injured when his car (a Mercedes Benz obviously) struck a support beam of the CTA tracks on his way to their morning skate.
A source on the Blackhawks’ public relations team confirmed Toews was not injured in his minor one-car collision in downtown Chicago this morning while driving himself to the United Center.
I’m very curious what the cause of this accident was. Could the “upper body injury” – better known as a concussion – be the reason behind his random car accident? The injury is thought to have occurred during the 9 game road trip, Toews most likely suffered the concussion in the San Jose game on February 10. Also, reports stated people on the street were trying to get autographs from Toews. He just got in a car accident, leave the boy alone!
According to ABC Quenneville said the team is still unsure whether Toews will travel with the team Friday to California for back-to-back games against the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks this weekend.
