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.

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
