2011 Player Media Tour
Toews enjoys his PMT veteran status
NEW YORK -- Jonathan Toews remembers the first Player Media Tour he attended back in 2009.

"I was star struck," he told NHL.com. "I've come a long way."

Indeed he has. Instead of being star struck, the Blackhawks captain is now comfortable in his starry skin as he prepares to go through his third Player Media Tour.

"It means a lot to be considered a top guy that gets invited back," Toews said. "You want to be one of those guys that keeps getting invited back."

Toews, Patrick Kane, Sidney Crosby and Henrik Lundqvist have attended all four Player Media Tour events in Manhattan.

Quote of the Day

I don’t know if it was more relief for me that [Stamkos] scored or the power play scored. It was a whole compilation of Alka Seltzer.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper after Steven Stamkos broke a long scoring drought and Tampa Bay's struggling power play scored four times in Game 2 at Montreal
