Blackhawks’ Jonathan Toews Rooted for Jets To Win Stanley Cup

Although he is the captain for the Chicago Blackhawks, Jonathan Toews still pulls for his hometown team when his team is out of playoff contention.

Toews missed the Stanley Cup playoffs for just the 2nd time in his career this past season as the Blackhawks had a disappointing campaign, but Toews found something to get excited about with the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

His hometown team, the Winnipeg Jets.

“I definitely don’t want to see any team win the Cup,” Toews said, according to SN’s Kara Wagland. “I won’t be happy to see someone else hoist it at the end of it all. But I was asked this question numerous times and being from Winnipeg, I think it would have been great for the city, and just knowing how passionate those fans are and how much they love the game. To see their team do well, I was secretly kind of rooting for them if I had to pick somebody.”

The Jets fell short of their quest, losing to the Vegas Golden Knights in 5 games in the Western Conference Final.

Toews is confident that the Hawks can return to the playoffs next season.

“Absolutely,” Toews said. “I think we all were disappointed and kind of shocked as to how the second half of our season went this year and we’re all kind of feeling that sting pretty good. So I think everyone’s going to be excited to bring their best hockey forward next year. We know that’s the goal.”
