On This Date In Chicago Blackhawks History,

On October 10, 2007 at the United Center Jonathan Toews scored his first NHL goal on his first shot of his career.  Toews beat San Jose Sharks goalie Evgeni Nabokov for his break-through goal.  Toews was the 3rd pick of the 2006 draft making his NHL start, and even though the Blackhawks would lose the game 2-1 they were on the right track to win the war.   3 years later a Stanley Cup Banner would be getting raised to the rafters of the United Center.

Toews would be named Captain one year later!

Toews career totals are 410 games played, 167 goals 206 assists +116 rating.  Toews has collected 2 Stanley Cups, 1 Conn Smythe, 1 Selke, and 1 Gold Medal.  Toews is on his the path to a Hall of Fame career and statue status outside the United Center.

The Captain scores on his first shot 6 years ago today! Here is the youtube magic of Toews 1st goal.
