Jonathan Toews made his Olympic debut as a member of the gold medal-winning team at Vancouver 2010. Canada’s leading points-getter with one goal and seven assists, Toews was named Best Forward of the tournament and earned a spot on the media all-star team.
After the Games, Toews returned to the Chicago Blackhawks, helping them win the Stanley Cup for the 2009-10 season. That made him the youngest player to join the Triple Gold Club, having earned two-thirds of it in the same season. He had gotten the first part of the triple, IIHF World Championship gold, in 2007.
In 2007 Toews had become the first Canadian to win gold at both the junior and senior world championships in the same year, before he ever played in the NHL. At the 2007 IIHF World Junior Championship, he was Canada’s leading scorer in winning a second straight gold medal. His performance was also notable for his record three shootout goals in the semifinal against the United States.
Toews returned to the IIHF World Championship in 2008 following his NHL rookie season and helped Canada win silver on home ice in Quebec City.
