NHL Rumour: Chicago Blackhawks Forward Contemplating Future

When it comes to rumours, it usually surrounds a trade or a contract. However, the rumour focus today surrounds a players future playing the game he loves most. Today we look at the future of Chicago Blackhawks Jonathan Toews.

Future Of Chicago Blackhawks Jonathan Toews Uncertain

Rumour: ESPN discusses the hint of Jonathan Toews leaning towards retirement

When you think of the Chicago Blackhawks most recent dynasty run, the list of players is endless. But one name in particular is Chicago Blackhawks Jonathan Toews. The centre has spent his entire career in Chicago while also serving as the team captain. With that core group long gone, will Toews be the next man out?

Why Toews Could Hang Up The Skates

Chicago Blackhawks Jonathan Toews has his contract set to expire. He can become a free agent. However, he has chosen to step away from the game due to health complications with Covid-19. In addition, he missed all of last year due to health-related issues. When it comes to his health and his playing days here is what he has to say, “When you’re young and you’re playing for a Stanley Cup and everyone’s playing through something, that means something and it’s worthwhile. But I’m at that point where it feels like more damage is being done than is a good thing.”

At the end of the day, you have to take care of yourself or nobody else will. In the days of retirement, you still have to live and go on to live a normal life. In the end, that is the mindset the captain has. If he chooses to walk away from the game, he leaves as a 3x Stanley Cup Champion, Selke Trophy Winner, and a player that has played in over 1000 games. If this is the end, what a run it has been.
