Will Jonathan Toews’ wellness enable him to keep playing?
TSN: Chris Johnston does not think Jonathan Toews desires to retire, that he would certainly like to keep playing, yet it’s most likely up to his body on what takes place.
“He’s just 34 years old and, ultimately, what might be the decider here is just where his health is at. He’s missed a recent season with some long COVID symptoms. He’s dealt with a lot of fatigue and issues. And over these next few weeks as he processes what happened at the end of this season, (he) starts to look ahead to his opportunities on July 1. I think where his health at first and foremost will dictate if he continues on but I certainly think there’s will on the player’s side to continue his career.”
