Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jonathan Toews
Jonathan Toews was born April 29, 1988 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The first round, 3rd overall selection of the Chicago Blackhawks is a graduate of the North Dakota Fighting Sioux.

A talented and highly skilled forward, Toews spent two seasons at the University of North Dakota where in 76 games he scored 40 goals, 45 assists for 85 points. He also led North Dakota to a 2007 Frozen Four appearance after he captured gold at the World Junior Championships with Canada.

Upon his arrival in the NHL, Toews would score a point in each of his first ten NHL games (5 goals, 5 assists). Despite being limited to 64 games due to injury, Toews led all rookies in goals (24) and managed to record 54 points. Only two NHL Rookies had more points than Toews, but both had played 18 games more than the former Fighting Sioux. At the NHL Awards, Toews was named one of the three candidates for the Calder Trophy as the league's top rookie, however the prize was captured by his teammate Patrick Kane.

On the international stage, Toews twice won gold at the World Junior Championship (2006, 2007), won the gold medal at the World Hockey Championships (2007) and was part of the Canadian team that captured gold on home soil at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.

Following Canada's Olympic triumph in Vancouver, Toews returned to the Blackhawks with a chance to achieve a rare double - Olympic gold and a Stanley Cup Championship in the same calendar year. In the 2010 playoffs, the Blackhawks survived a first round scare from the Nashville Predators, a hard fought battle with the Vancouver Canucks and steamrolled over the San Jose Sharks en route to the Stanley Cup Final where they would take on the upstart Philadelphia Flyers.

The Blackhawks would defeat the Flyers in six games, winning the franchise's first Stanley Cup since 1961. It was captain Jonathan Toews who led all players in playoff scoring and was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP.

Toews and the Blackhawks would not have to wait nearly as long for the franchise's next championship. In 2013 the Blackhawks rolled through the NHL's regular season, capturing the Presidents' Trophy, and followed that up in the playoffs. Though pushed to the limit by the Detroit Red Wings in the second round, the Blackhawks would prevail and eventually earn the fifth Stanley Cup title in franchise history.

In 2014 Toews was called upon to represent his country once again at the Olympic Winter Games. This time held in Sochi, Russia, the result was more of the same for Toews and Canada. They went undefeated during tournament play en route to capturing the country's second consecutive gold medal.

After being knocked out in the Western Conference Finals by the eventual Stanley Cup Champion, Los Angeles Kings in 2014, the Toews would return to the Stanley Cup Final in 2015 with the Blackhawks where they would defeat the Tampa Bay Lightning in six games. This would make three Stanley Cups in six years for Toews and the Blackhawks.

At the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, Toews would once again represent Canada. In six tournament games he recorded a pair of goals and added three assists to help his homeland capture the title.
