Toews lands on top available UFA list

On April 13th, 2023, Jonathan Toews bid farewell to his days as a Chicago Blackhawk. As a long-time Captain of the team, his departure left a void that the United Center faithful will miss dearly.

Following Toews' departure, Kyle Davidson took a no-holds-barred approach to rebuilding the team, trading away everyone, including Max Domi.

Jonathan Toews
Projected contract: $3.7 million x two years
Model value: $2.3 million

Projected Offensive Rating: 0
Projected Defensive Rating: -2

Captain Serious can probably still net a team 50 points, but the former Selke Trophy winner just isn't what he used to be without the puck. Maybe that can change in a new locale in a lesser role — it's just a tough ask at his age.


However, despite not being offered a contract by the new Blackhawks GM, Toews remains determined to carry on.

Toews has earned a spot on the list of the Top 50 NHL upcoming unrestricted free agents, and his experience and skills would make him a valuable addition to any team.

While he may need to adjust his expectations, he still has the potential to make a difference on the offensive end, despite some defensive shortcomings.
