Toews doesn't regret trying to play through concussion

Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews missed 23 games last season while dealing with a concussion. But he didn't come off the ice for good until playing a few games with the symptoms.

In a one-on-one interview at 2012 Blackhawks Convention, Toews tells Comcast SportsNet's Chris Boden that he doesn't regret attempting to play through it:

"I think it was known for a couple games I was playing through some issues, playing with some issues," Toews said. "I wasn't feeling like myself, and to me, I look back, and if I felt that way today I would still give an effort to try and play through it. It didn't feel like it was enough, my body wasn't telling me that 'OK, it's time to quit, this isn't working.'

"I think it just gradually got worse as that week went along."

To see what Toews had to say about Raffi Torres' hit on Marian Hossa, a second-straight first round playoff exit and being involved in talks for a new collective bargaining agreement, watch the video below:
