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

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
