He left Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Preds midway through the game and did not return.
However, the injury is not considered to be serious as Hawks coach Joel Quenneville expects Toews to be ready to return after the All Star break when the Hawks play the Canucks on Jan. 31 in Vancouver.
"Hopefully (Toews) can progress," Quenneville told the Tribune. "We'll get a better assessment after (the break). Certainly, time is in our favor with the whole week off. I don't think there's any good time to get injured. It's all part of the season. Everybody goes through it and deals with it. You get exposed and tested a different way."
Toews, an All Star along with teammates Marian Hossa and Patrick Kane, leads the Blackhawks with 27 goals in 49 games this season.
