Breaking: Jonathan Toews Shares Promising Update on His Return to the Ice

With Jonathan Toews, the Chicago Blackhawks had some fantastic seasons. He is undoubtedly the best captain the team has ever had and one of the greatest players in the franchise’s history.

We now understand that his time in Chicago is up. What lies ahead for him in the future is unknown. He is taking some time to consider whether or not he wants to pursue a playing career.

According to a recent report from Daily Faceoff’s Frank Seravalli, Toews won’t be signed on the first day of free agency. He’s saying that a choice still needs to be made.

Additionally, he stated that there are a lot of teams that are interested in signing Jonathan Toews. He must take that into consideration when making his choice. Being desired is pleasant.

It is a little strange that the Blackhawks didn’t leave that door open before knowing Connor Bedard was coming because it would be cool to see them play together but it won’t be. It is just simply time to move on now.

Toews clearly, if his body can handle it, has a lot to give. He can still score goals, win tons of faceoffs, and brings a wealth of experience that is so rare in pro sports. What team trying to win wouldn’t want a three-time Stanley Cup-winning captain?

The fact that Toews has lost time recently due to health issues might be the only thing keeping him from announcing that he is staying. At the end of the day, he must act in his best interests, those of his family, and those of his body.

Toews will always be remembered in this community as a legend that people enjoy hearing about because of what he accomplished throughout his NHL career with Chicago. The same is true of Patrick Kane, who is currently searching for his new NHL team.

Before the Blackhawks are successful and back in the playoffs, it will take some time. Supporting Toews (and Kane) will be enjoyable until it happens, which Bedard will assist in achieving. He should be in good enough shape to try for one more Cup, perhaps.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
