CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks have acquired forward David Toews from the New York Islanders in exchange for future considerations.

The move was announced Friday. The 21-year-old Toews is the younger brother of Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews.

Originally selected by the Islanders 66th overall in the 2008 entry draft, Toews spent two seasons at North Dakota. He recorded nine goals and 17 assists in 55 NCAA games with the Fighting Sioux.

He had 20 goals, 28 assists and 16 penalty minutes in 60 regular-season games with the Western Hockey League's Brandon Wheat Kings last season. He had two goals and five assists in six playoff games.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
