If you look at the Blackhawks season, you will notice at the top of one of its centers is leading the team with 10 points. If the player is calculated Jonathan Toews, think again.
Instead, Artem Anisimov is who has five goals and five assists through the first eight games Hawks.
Toews, meanwhile, has yet to score a goal, even though he has three assists. Toews laughed Friday when asked if he is eager to score his first goal of the season.
Toews is right to say that it is a slow starter. Last season his first goal arrived eight games into the season, and finished with 28. The season before he had a goal in his first seven games, but finished with 28. On Friday, Joel Quenneville coach paired with Patrick Kane Toews, along with Richard Panik in an effort to get Toews on the board. It is likely to be back together on Sunday when the Hawks face the Kings. Read More
Kane notched a power-play support, five photos on objective and two PIM during Friday’s 3-2 win against New Jersey.
Kane Jersey generally discovers a way on the scoresheet, even in what was a low-scoring event to Chicago’s requirements Saturday. The 27-year-old celebrity has two adds and seven assistants to start the year and seems to be just as starving as last seasons 106-point strategy. While the 2007 No. 1 choose would be hard-pressed to do it again, we would not put it previous him. Kane is a man and could appear for multi-point trips against any group.
Chicago Blackhawks center Toews looks around in the second period in Game 4 of the NHL first-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday, April 19, 2016, in Chicago.
Toews has no goals and two assists in the first seven games of the season.
“I do not think you’ve ever worried about him,” said Patrick Kane. “He’s going to make, it will be effective on the ice. I’m sure he wants to produce more, but I do not think it’s something that we’re really worried yet.”
In fact, there is nothing unusual about the beginning of Toews’. For a guy who scored his first NHL goal in his first NHL game, the slow start was quite common. Last year, he had no goals in the first seven games. In 2014-15, he had one goal in seven games. In 2010-11, he had one goal in nine games. In 2009-10, he had no goals in seven games. And in 2008-09, he had no goals in 12 games.
But the captain of the Hawks never scored less than 23 goals and had 28 goals in each of his last three seasons. Toews usually finds his offensive groove at the end of October or beginning of November, and never looks back. At the same time, it plays a sound all-around game that he is still a huge contribution. In fact, only Duncan Keith and Panarin have the best numbers of possession so far, than Toews. When he was on the ice, the Hawks had a dominant 57 percent of attempts the shot. Read More

Las Vegas is getting an NHL team, and to form this team, it’s time for an expansion project.
Adding to the NHL Las Vegas brings more emotion and eyes in the league, however their favorite team that means something else. When added Las Vegas for the league, they received a first round pick somewhere between the first and sixth – depending on the lottery. The NHL will hold an expansion project to set up a list of unnamed team in Las Vegas.
Unlike the expansion project of the NHL 2000, teams will be allowed only to protect seven forwards, three defenders and a goalkeeper or goalie eight skaters. This format means that teams will lose a piece of the organization that is not essential but is beneficial.
