Let’s talk about this current run of Jonathen Toews
I don’t know if he is your favorite player with more flashey kaner or the new rising superstar Artemi Panarin but mine is still and always will be Captain Serious. I think people forget he is only 28 yrs old. It seems like this core has been in Chicago forever and with his high output during the years past. If you want to look to a comparable year for him in the amount of games played look no further than the 2013-2014. This year he has played in 38 games because his back got hurt and he missed some time so if everything goes well he will finish the season with 73 games. In the 2013-14 season he played in a total of 76 games. Here are his stats
G: 28 7
A: 40 15
+/-: 30 -2
Now the season is still young there are 35 games left in the season but It looks as if he is taking a back seat to Panarin in stead of adding to the puzzle. His shot totals aren’t bad either (98) so looks like he just needs to get some lucky bounces and we would be talking a different story. The thing too that I am happy in looking it up is his faceoff win % is still having around career averages (57.5%). He will get on track soon I would bet. It’s a good problem to have the Hawks tied with points in the conference (61) with a huge peace just in a slump.
