Former Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews [[ TAYVZ ]] is stepping away from the ice. The three-time Stanley Cup champion said that he’s “not fully retiring” from the NHL, but he plans to take “some time away from the game again this season.” The 35-year-old center totaled 15 goals and 31 points in 53 games with Chicago last season. Toews has spent his entire 15-year NHL career with the Blackhawks after being drafted third overall in 2006.
