Joanthan Toews currently leads the Chicago Blackhawks in scoring, and is tied for second in the league in goals. He has registered 27 goals, and 23 assists in 49 contests with the Blackhawks this season.
If it were not for the undisclosed upper body injury he suffered last week, Toews would be playing in this week's All-Star game.
The former Conn Smythe Trophy winner as the MVP in the Blackhawks' cup win in 2010 is also the youngest player in history to become a member of the prestigious Triple-Gold Club (Olympic Gold Medal, Stanley Cup, World Championship).
Toews is one of the best shootout players in the league with a record of 14 goals in 26 attempts, or a 53.8% goal percentage. This would make him perfect for the Elimination Shootout Challenge.
The All-Star game this week will miss out on his impressive playmaking-ability, something all Blackhawks fans know about, and his knack for scoring when it counts.
