Jonathan Toews received a hero’s welcome in his hometown Sunday, along with other accolades for the quiet 22-year-old who has already won a lifetime’s worth of awards.
Toews was cheered by hundreds of fans who chanted his name outside city hall as he raised the Stanley Cup and kissed it. Many supporters wore Chicago Blackhawks jerseys with Toews’ name and number.
“Even though he’s famous, he’s still very humble and remembers his roots and doesn’t take it all for granted,” gushed Toni Toews — no relation — who showed up two hours early with her 16-year-old daughter Georgee, carrying a banner inscribed with the words “You did it”.
