Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews nursing upper-body injury

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews sat out his first game of the season with an upper-body injury.

Toews was a scratch for the Blackhawks' traditional Black Friday visit to the Anaheim Ducks, a 3-2 victory.

Toews was hurt during Chicago's game at San Jose on Wednesday. He also will sit out the Blackhawks' visit to Los Angeles on Saturday.

The three-time Stanley Cup champion has four goals and eight assists this season.

Rookie Vincent Hinostroza took Toews' spot in the lineup, centering a line with Marian Hossa and Ryan Hartman.
