Jonathan Toews has his eye on one team when he returns to the NHL

Published August 23, 2023 at 8:39 PM

Almost a week ago, it was revealed that after 16 years as a Chicago Blackhawk, Jonathan Toews was stepping away from the NHL to focus more on his health. The 35-year-old Chicago legend has been pretty vocal about suffering from the effects of long COVID, especially having missed the entire 2020-2021 season due to crippling symptoms and his personal struggle with chronic immune response syndrome.

However, Toews doesn't seem to even consider retirement just yet, and when he does return to the NHL, he would fit in nicely on the Boston Bruins roster. Toews is a strong center, with 372 career goals and 511 career assists. With Bruins center legends Patrice Bergeron and David Krejčí both having announced their retirements in the last month, Toews' name on the roster eventually would be interesting.

Two things would have to happen, though: the Bruins would need to free up some salary cap, and Toews would have to be comfortable with playing out his last few years in a jersey that's not Chicago's.

Pagnotta also noted the potential fit between the Bruins and NHL veteran Jonathan Toews. Even though Toews had primarily been working on getting healthy and recovering from the effects of Long Covid, the Bruins were on Toews' radar dating back to last year as a potential destination.
