Feeling ‘drained and lethargic,’ former UND star Jonathan Toews to miss training camp with Chicago Blackhawks


#Jonathan #Toews will not be in training camp for the #Chicago #Blackhawks when it begins next month.

The former UND star and longtime captain of the #Blackhawks said in a statement #Tuesday that he’s struggling with a medical condition that has left him “drained and lethargic.” #He has not set a timetable for when he will be able to return to hockey.

“#This offseason, I’ve been experiencing symptoms that have left me feeling drained and lethargic. I am working with doctors so I can better understand my condition,” #Toews said. “#Until I can get my health back to a place where I feel I can perform at an elite level and help my team, I will not be joining the #Blackhawks for training camp. I do not have a timetable for when I will rejoin the team. I am extremely disappointed, but it wouldn’t be fair to myself or my teammates to attempt to play in my current condition.”

#Toews helped the #Blackhawks upset the #Edmonton #Oilers in the first round. #Chicago was knocked out by the #Vegas #Golden #Knights in the conference quarterfinals.

“#Jonathan’s health is our top priority as he deals with this medical issue,” #Chicago GM #Stan #Bowman said. “The #Chicago #Blackhawks organization and our medical staff will provide all necessary resources to help him return to playing hockey. #While he will not report to training camp on #January 3 and will be out indefinitely, we will continue to support him as he is an important part of our family. I’ve been in regular communication with #Jonathan recently and will continue that as he takes care of his health.

“The health and privacy of all our players is paramount to the #Chicago #Blackhawks organization. #We care about #Jonathan, and we know how badly he wants to be with his teammates competing on the ice. #We will provide further updates on his status as circumstances change and do not have a timetable for his return.”

#Toews has more NHL regular-season (815) and playoff points (119) than any former UND player.

#He has captained the #Blackhawks to three #Stanley #Cups in 2010, 2013 and 2015. #He also has won two #Olympic gold medals with #Canada in 2010 and 2014.
