On Wednesday, the Blackhawks announced they agreed to terms with Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane on 8-year contract extensions.
In celebration of the new deals, let's revisit one of Tazer and Kaner's first photo shoot together back in 2007.

“I could not be more grateful for the amazing moments and opportunities I've been given by the Chicago Blackhawks," said Toews after reaching the new deal. "There's no organization in sports that cares more about the overall experience of their fans and the success of their players. To have the chance to continue with this amazing group of teammates and people throughout the organization is an incredible honor. There's nothing we want more as players than to continue to win Stanley Cups for the best hockey fans on the planet.” (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)
"It's great to be able to continue my career in Chicago," said Kane after agreeing to his new contract. "Playing with the best organization in sports and the best fans in the game is a blessing. Since I was drafted by the Blackhawks, the people of Chicago have really embraced me and treated me with nothing but respect. I look forward to many more years of success with the Blackhawks."
