Chicago Blackhawks sign forwards Toews and Kane to eight-year extensions

CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks have agreed to terms with forwards Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane on eight-year contract extensions.

The deals run through the 2022-'23 NHL season.

The team says a formal news conference will be held next week at the United Center.

Toews has served as captain of the Blackhawks for the last six years while Kane is a three-time all-star.

Both players helped Chicago to Stanley Cup victories in 2010 and 2013.

The Blackhawks did not release financial terms of the extensions.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
