When Jonathan Toews scored his 20th goal of the season on Saturday afternoon, the faces of the Blackhawks for the last decade joined incredible company.
Toews and Patrick Kane became the fourth teammates in NHL history to each score 20+ goals in 11 consecutive seasons – the league record for the achievement.
Toews and Kane are now tied with:
- Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita – Blackhawks
- Gordy Howe and Norm Ulman – Red Wings
- Yvan Cournoyer and Jacques Lemaire – Canadiens
Only three other Blackhawks have scored at least 20 goals in a season in as many as 11 consecutive seasons: Mikita (14), Hull (13) and Steve Larmer (11) – another reminder why the Blackhawks should retire 28.
