For the third time in his career, Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews was presented the Stanley Cup. If it’s becoming old hat to the talented forward, he has a funny way of showing it.
This time, we get to go inside the Stanley Cup presentation as Toews was mic’d up. Don't worry, the expletives are edited out. The childlike hoots and hollers were not.
Jonathan Toews hoists the #StanleyCup, and YOU get to listen to it happen. http://t.co/HKeqB1srbv— NHL (@NHL) June 16, 2015
After exchanging quick pleasantries with commissioner Gary Bettman, Toews could barely wait to get the green light to get that trophy over his head. Once it was up, it sounded like Toews was riding the best roller coaster in the world.
After Toews had his moment at center ice, he turned to veteran defenseman and first-time Cup winner Kimmo Timonen.
“Come here Kimmo! Come get it, baby,” Toews screamed to his teammate.
When Timonen looked ready to pass the trophy off to the next person in line, Toews demanded the 40-year-old who is retiring after this season take the Cup for a skate.
Toews is proof that the thrill of victory doesn’t fade with repetition.
