EDMONTON, Alberta Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa did not participate in morning skate but both will be in the lineup tonight when the Chicago Blackhawks take on the Edmonton Oilers at Rexall Place.
Defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson was back on the ice this morning after missing Tuesdays practice. Hjalmarsson said his right foot was swollen after blocking a shot off it Monday night against the Calgary Flames, but hes fine and will play tonight.
The Blackhawks, meanwhile, will try to end a two-game losing streak against the Oilers tonight. They claimed a 5-0 victory here back on Nov. 17, when Toews netted a hat trick. Corey Crawford gets the start in net.

The Wolverines unveiled their new hoops unis Friday, and as one might expect, they look pretty cool.
Check them out:
In true Michigan fashion, the uniforms were unveiled at some giant party event with celebrities and whatnot.
