Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews said he was OK after being involved in a car accident on Lake Street on the Near West Side on Thursday morning.

Contacted via text by the Tribune, Toews responded by saying, “It’s nothing serious at all,” and added, “I’m good.”

The Blackhawks released a statement saying, “Jonathan Toews was in a minor one-car collision in downtown Chicago this morning while driving himself to the United Center. He was not injured.”

Toews was not scheduled to play when the Hawks face the Dallas Stars on Thursday night at the United Center, the second consecutive game he’ll miss with what coach Joel Quenneville called an upper-body injury.

At 9:22 a.m., Toews was behind the wheel of a car that was southbound on Garvey Court when he turned left onto eastbound Lake Street, according to a police report. He had no passengers.
