Kane and Toews get eight-year extensions in Chicago

by Amy Moritz

How does eight more years sound?

The Chicago Blackhawks announced contract extensions to both Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews that will run through the 2022-23 season. The contracts are worth a reported $10.5 million per season.

A formal press conference will be next week.

Kane, the 25-year old Buffalo native, has scored big goals in big games for the Blackhawks, including the series-clinching goal in Game 6 of the 2010 Stanley Cup Final while winning the Conn Smythe Trophy (playoff MVP) in 2013. He won the Calder Trophy (rookie of the year) in 2008 and has participated in the NHL All-Star Game in 2009, 2011, and 2012.

The 26-year old Toews has 440 points (195 goals, 245 assists) in 484 regular season games after making his debut during the 2007-08 season. He became the second-youngest player to win the Conn Smythe Trophy  when he led Chicago to its first Stanley Cup title in 49 years back in 2010. In 2013, he won the Frank J. Selke Trophy for the league's best defensive forward.
