Jonathan Toews

Let’s be honest, Jonathan Toews is a living legend in the eyes of Chicago Blackhawks’ fans everywhere.

After an extensive “dark ages” period, Toews has played a major role in turning the Blackhawks’ franchise around and helped make them relevant once again in the hockey community.

In his 12 NHL seasons, all with Chicago, Toews has racked up a very respectable 755 points (327G, 428A) with a 195 ± rating in 873 games.

In that time, he also collected three Stanley Cups, a Mark Messier Leadership Award, a Frank J. Selke Trophy, a Conn Smythe trophy, and made eight All-Star appearances.

During Toews’ first two seasons, he made a big impact, the slight advantage goes to DeBrincat in terms of production. This is another impressive feat by the young stud, Alex DeBrincat.

Although DeBrincat has the upper hand on Toews by a few points, he still has a long way to go in terms of his overall hockey resume. The following highlight reel sums up what Jonathan Toews means to Chicago.
