Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews acknowledged on Friday that he is dealing with a concussion. Toews has been sidelined the past eight games after suffering the injury in a game against St. Louis on Feb. 19. He said he is unsure when he will return to the ice, although he noted that he is feeling better. "No one else can tell me how I feel," Toews said. "It's up to me to be honest with myself and be smart about it." Toews, who skated Thursday for the first time since he was hurt, said he has been texting with Pittsurgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby, who has played in only eight games in 14 months due to recurring concussion-like symptoms. The 23-year-old center said he had played a couple of games with concussion symptoms before taking himself out of the lineup. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2006 NHL draft, Toews has 29 goals and 28 assists in 59 games.
