HftL Does the All-Stars (Western Conference): JONATHAN TOEWS of the Chicago Blackhawks

One of my favorite names in hockey, "Toews." You should pronounce it like the body part (toes); instead, it's "TAYVZ." I don't know what's up with that but it's really, awfully cute.

What's Hot - At 6'2" and 205, he's playing on my weakness for tall guys. He has one of those adorable little smirks. The Blackhawks fans call him
"Tayzer" which in no way fits his looks, but who cares? There are some types of adorable that you just can't explain. He's still a cutie. He's got fun dark hair, and pretty chocolate eyes, but most importantly, this - once, when he was ten years old, he put on his skates and headed to an outdoor rink in the middle of the night. He had heard that Guy Lafleur had done the same. WOW, dedication (really, how do you say no to a guy who want's it that bad?). Now that's what I call sexy...

What's Hockey - Blackhawks’ first choice (third overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. When he was named the 34th captain in Blackhawks history on July 17, 2008, making him the third-youngest player to earn that distinction in the history of the National Hockey League, Sidney Crosby sent him a text message congratulating him on this accomplishment. Nominated for the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie in 07/08. Recorded the first fighting major of his professional career on Nov. 18 against Phoenix (Martin Hanzal). [authors note: the proceeding sentence also goes in the above "What's Hot" category above, as well].

Great way to start my Friday!
Not going to lie, I have a little bit of a weakness for him.

Mmmm I adore him!

The Blackhawks are my favorite Western Conference team, and he is one of the reasons why.

Just a little FYI- he has a younger brother, David, who plays for the UND Fighting Sioux. He's a cutie too. Ron Hextall's son and Ryan Malone's cousin also play for the Sioux.
