The Chicago Blackhawks announced on Tuesday that Jonathan Toews will not attend training camp and will be out indefinitely after suffering from an undetermined medical issue.
“This offseason, I’ve been experiencing symptoms that have left me feeling drained and lethargic,” Toews said in a statement. “I am working with doctors so I can better understand my condition. 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.”
Blackhawks training camp opens on January 3.
