There is little doubt that when he's on the ice, Jonathan Toews is one of the top all-around players and best leaders in the NHL. Here's a look at some of Toews' most impressive numbers from the 2011-12 season.
1:52 – Average shorthanded time, pacing Chicago forwards. Toews totaled 110:36 of short-handed ice time in the 2011-12 campaign. His commitment to helping out his defense earned him a nomination for the Frank J. Selke Trophy in 2011, an award given to the most valuable defensive forward.
2 – Number of penalty-shot goals scored in one season. Toews was the first Blackhawk in franchise history to accomplish this feat after capitalizing on penalty shots in New York on Feb. 16 against the Rangers and at the United Center on Dec. 30 against the Detroit Red Wings.
3 – Players in Blackhawks franchise history to score 20 or more goals in each of their first five NHL seasons. Toews joined this elite club after recording 24 goals in his rookie campaign and maintaining that goal production every season since (34 in 2008-09, 25 in 2009-10, 32 in 2010-11, and 29 in 2011-12). Teammate Patrick Kane and Blackhawks Ambassador Denis Savard are the only other two Blackhawks to join the 20+ goal club in each of their first five seasons.
04:04 – Time into his first game back from a 22-game absence it took Toews to score. The goal was the first for the Blackhawks in the 2012 Western Conference Quarterfinals against the Phoenix Coyotes on April 12, 2012.
9 – Points scored in a season-long six-game point streak from Jan. 10-20, including five goals and four helpers. The Blackhawks were 5-0-1 in that span. Toews also recorded ten points (5G, 5A) in a five-game point streak from Nov. 10-18.
59.4 – Winning percentage in the faceoff circle. No player in the league had a better faceoff percentage than the Captain. He also led all Blackhawks with 675 faceoff wins.
16 – Number of multi-point outings, good for third-best on the roster. The Winnipeg, Manitoba, native recorded three three-point outings and five multi-goal games. Toews tallied a career-high five points (2G, 3A) on Nov. 25 against the Anaheim Ducks at the Honda Center. Of the five points, Toews registered four of them in the third period.
20:50 – Average ice time per game, best among Blackhawks forwards. Toews consistently gets the best from his teammates. He is a leader in every sense of the word, it’s no wonder he’s on the ice as often as possible.
57 – Points (29G, 28A) Toews recorded in just 59 games this season. He was among the league's point leaders when he went out on Feb. 21. If not for the injury that cost him 22 games, it’s likely Toews would have been on the short list for NHL MVP voting.
300 – Regular-season NHL career point, a milestone reached on Dec. 14 at Minnesota. His 300th point came in the form of an assist on Marian Hossa’s power-play tally.
