 VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -Chicago Blackhawks rookie Jonathan Toews is expected to return against the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday night after missing 16 games with a sprained left knee.
Toews was among the NHL rookie leaders with 32 points in 36 games before getting hurt during a game in Los Angeles on Jan. 1. More than a month later, he's still fourth on Chicago scoring, and his 15 goals are second only to Phoenix's Peter Mueller among all rookies.
``It's been long enough at this point,'' Toews said after practicing with a brace on his knee Saturday. ``It's taken pretty good care of itself and I don't think anything is at risk by going out and playing at this point. We've given it enough time to rest up and recover properly.''
