Jonathan Bryan Toews (/ˈtvz/ TAYVZ; born April 29, 1988 in Winnipeg, Manitoba) is an Canadian professional ice hockey centre. He currently plays for the Chicago Blackhawks of the National Hockey League (NHL). He serves as their captain.

Before playing in the NHL, Toews played college hockey for 2 years at the University of North Dakota. During his time there, he contributed 85 points (40 goals, 45 assists), a plus-38 rating and a 56.7% faceoff winning percentage in 76 games. He was also able to help UND reach the NCAA Frozen Four in both 2006 and 2007 and served as their alternate captain during his sophomore season[1] He helped UND win the Broadmoor Cup as WCHA champions and he was also named the West Regional MVP after he tallied five points.[2] Before he went into the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, the NHL Central Scouting Bureau ranked Toews third among North American prospects[2] He was drafted with the 3rd overall pick by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

When Toews brought the Stanley Cup to his hometown of Winnipeg after the Blackhawks won it, the province of Manitoba named a lake in his honour. It is named Toews Lake and is 150 km north of Flin Flon.[3] During that same day, Toews was given the Keys to the City[4] and the Dakota Community Centre in St. Vital where he first played organized hockey was renamed the Jonathan Toews Community Centre in his honour.[5]
