Last season, rookie Jonathan Toews was known by teammates as “Mr. Serious.” This season, thanks to being named the third-youngest captain ever in the National Hockey League, his nickname’s been upgraded: The Winnipeg native is now known as “Captain Serious.”
“I love it when I hear him called ‘Captain Serious’ because it’s so true,” says his mom, Andrée Gilbert. “Just recently I read an article quoting the hockey coach from Shattuck-St. Mary’s who coached both my sons. He said that hockey-wise they’re very similar, but Jonathan plans his days three or four years ahead of time, and David [drafted by the New York Islanders this year] flies by the seat of his pants. Jonathan’s been serious and dedicated since he was very young.”
