Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz believes that Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane are worth every penny of their eight-year, $84 million contract extensions.
"I think that they're quality individuals," Wirtz told the Chicago Tribune editorial board. "They're never satisfied. They're great leaders, and I think they're terrific for the city. As the eight-year contracts go on, I think we'll see they're worth every penny." The contract extensions will kick-in this upcoming season. Limited cap space has forced the Hawks to part ways with veterans like Patrick Sharp and Johnny Oduya, but keeping Toews and Kane in the fold was a no-brainer for Chicago. Jul 26 - 9:34 AM

Jonathan Toews understands that more pressure accompanies his new contract.

Toews and Patrick each see their matching eight-year, $84 million contracts start this season. "As soon as the next season starts everyone tends to forget about what happened last year and it’s time to go to work again," Toews said. "We’ve shown we can do that and we know given the fact we just lost … important teammates and the focus is on us and our contract that there is more pressure than ever." With the amount of moves Chicago has made this summer, Toews will need to continue his stellar play — 28 goals, 66 points last season.

Jonathan Toews said the Hawks' toughest opponent en route to the Cup was the Anaheim Ducks, who took Chicago to a seventh game in the Western Conference Final.

"Anaheim had so many components of the game," Toews said. "The physicality, the speed, the skill of the top-end players like the (Ryan) Getzlafs and (Corey) Perrys we ran up against. They were such a tough team in goaltending and all aspects.

Jonathan Toews now has a beer named after him.

Or more specifically, the beer is called Captain Serious #19 Pale Ale. It's made by Hailstorm Brewing Co., which describes it as "dry and hoppy West Coast style pale ale." In addition to the Stanley Cup, Toews also won the Mark Messier Leadership Award and he was nominated for the Selke Trophy for his work in 2014-15. He'll also appear on the cover of EA Sports' NHL 16 alongside Patrick Kane.

Jonathan Toews was narrowly beat up by Patrice Bergeron for the Frank J. Selke Trophy as the NHL's best defensive forward.

Bergeron captured 1,083 voting points, including 75 first-place votes, while Toews collected 1,051 points. Anze Kopitar, who was the third finalist, only garnered 364 points in the voting.

In a surprising twist, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane will share the EA Sports NHL 16 game cover.

The picture will be of the teammates holding the Stanley Cup during their on-ice celebration earlier this month, and will mark the first time in EA franchise history that two teammates will share the game's cover.

Jonathan Toews won the Mark Messier Leadership Award on Wednesday night.

The award is given "in recognition of his commitment and service to charities in his community," and the winner is decided on by Messier himself. Toews had another excellent season on the ice with 28 goals and 66 points, plus the Stanley Cup, but it was his off-ice production that set him apart. Here's just one example, "Independently, Toews served as the honorary chairperson for the Israel Idonije Fundraiser, which helps underserved communities by providing programs focused on social and emotional life skills."

The Chicago Blackhawks brought the Stanley Cup to Wrigley Field on Wednesday.

The Blackhawks posed for a picture with the Cup along with the Chicago Cubs. After that, Jonathan Toews threw out the ceremonial first pitch. It's just one of the Stanley Cup's first destinations as part of Chicago's summer long celebration. The city will hold a parade for the Blackhawks on Thursday.

Jonathan Toews joined an elite group of players who've won at least three Stanley Cups as Captain.

While Toews didn't hit the score board, he did co-lead all shooters with six shots, throw two hits and block one shot, while winning 71% of his draws over his 18:59 of work in Monday's 2-0 Game 6 and Cup-clinching victory. Now the captain of three Cup-winning teams, Toews joins: Scott Stevens (3), Steve Yzerman (3), Wayne Gretzky (4), Dennis Potvin (4), Yvon Cournoyer (4), George Armstrong (4), and the late, great Jean Beliveau (5) for the most Cups as a captain.

Jonathan Toews netted his 10th goal of the postseason in Wednesday's 2-1 win over Tampa Bay in Game 4 of he Stanley Cup Final.

He was also credited with four shots, four hits and four blocks in the contest. Toews, who has 20 points in 21 playoff games this year, always seems to play his best when his team needs him the most and the Blackhawks didn't want to go back to Tampa Bay in a 3-1 hole in the series. Chicago's victory tied the Stanley Cup Final at two wins apiece and now it's a best of three.

Coach Joel Quenneville is expected to keep Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane on different lines heading into Game 3 on Monday night.

"Splitting them up gives you a little bit more freedom," Quenneville said Sunday. "More balance to our offense is why we like to keep them apart, but they do like playing with each other." If they are on separate lines then Quenneville can get one of stars away from the Lightning's outstanding defense duo of Victor Hedman and Anton Stralman.
Jun 8 - 10:55 AM

The line of Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad struggled to produce in Saturday's 4-3 Game 2 loss to Tampa Bay.

Coach Joel Quenneville decided to shuffle his lines during the game and he reunited Toews and Marian Hossa. "We had a lot of puck possession, but we just didn’t quite get to the inside as much early in the game," Toews said. "So Hoss jumps on our line and we find a way to score. Sometimes a quick change like that will make things click." Whether they are together or apart, expect the trio to bounce back at some point in this series.
Jun 7 - 9:36 AM

In the past four postseasons, Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final has required overtime to settle the score.

The Chicago Blackhawks and Tampa Bay Lightning weren't all that far from OT in Game 1, as Antoine Vermette scored the game-winner with about four minutes remaining in the third period. Jonathan Toews says that the Blackhawks want "every guy in the room feeling like he might be the guy" when heading into OT situations, according to the CP's Stephen Whyno.
Jun 6 - 1:33 PM

The first line of Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, and Brandon Saad remained intact during Friday's practice.

The trio was held off the scoresheet in Game 1. It's a dangerous line, but keeping Toews and Kane together strains the Blackhawks from a depth perspective. Of course, coach Joel Quenneville can always change his lines on the fly if he feels it's become necessary.
Jun 5 - 5:12 PM

Jonathan Toews downplayed Steve Yzerman's assertion that Toews is better than he was.

Yzerman's statement was obviously high praise given everything he accomplished during his Hall of Fame playing career. "I want to call him Mr. Yzerman, but I know he'd probably get mad at me if I said that," Toews said. "But I think Steve is a very complimentary person and I don't think he'd say anything less than that. I just take that with a grain of salt. I think everyone here knows that's pretty much untrue, but it obviously means a lot to hear any sort of praise from a guy like that." Toews and Yzerman have known each other since 2007 when Toews was playing for Team Canada and Yzerman was serving as the nation's general manager.
