Tootoo is suffering from an illness that leaves his status for Tuesday's game against the Flyers in question, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Tootoo rarely took the ice in the first two games of the season, but saw 10:38 of ice time against Nashville on Saturday. The winger has yet to tally a point this season, and his lack of ice time leaves him undesirable in the vast majority of fantasy leagues. If he's unable to go Tuesday, the Blackhawks are expected to dress seven defensemen.
