VIDEO: One-on-one with Jonathan Toews

It has been quite a year for Jonathan Toews. Not only did he help Canada capture Olympic gold at the Vancouver games, but he also captained the Chicago Blackhawks to their first championship since 1961. To top it off he was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the post-season’s most valuable player.

And the accolades don’t stop there, in late June Toews was named EA Sports cover athlete for NHL 11. EA Sports NHL celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and Toews says it is a great honor to grace the cover of a game he grew up playing.

Ryan Kennedy caught up with Toews to talk about his unbelievably successful year when he was in Toronto to promote the game.
