On Wednesday, the NHL named Jonathan Toews the league’s Number One Star for the month of February.
From the release:
Toews paced the NHL with 7-11-18 in 10 games to guide the Blackhawks (39 18-5, 83 points) to a 9-1-0 February and second place in the Western Conference. He collected at least one point in nine of his 10 outings, highlighted by five multi-point performances. That included his fourth career hat trick and second career five-point effort Feb. 21 at MIN (3-2-5) – the first five-point game by a Chicago player since Toews achieved the feat Nov. 25, 2011 at ANA (2-3-5). He also registered a pair of game-winning goals, including his ninth career overtime tally Feb. 8 at MIN (1-2-3) – the most by any player in Blackhawks history. The 28-year-old Winnipeg native has 16 30-46 in 53 contests this season, including 5-8-13 during a six-game point streak.
Nashville Predators left wing Filip Forsberg and Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby were named the Number Two and Number Three Stars, respectively.
