Toews is glad to play more hockey (and Mario Kart)


Jonathan Toews has accomplished so much in his career that it’s easy to forget that he’s still very young at 25. Maybe a video game reference will help remind some people?

The Chicago Blackhawks captain gave a pretty lighthearted assessment of why he’s glad his team managed to advance to the 2013 Western Conference finals (via the Chicago Sun-Times’ Mark Lazerus).

“We’ve played a lot of hockey. But it’s too early to go home,” Toews said. “We like going on the road, playing Mario Kart.”

Should we start calling him “Captain Serious Gamer” from now on, then?

Toews left a burning question: which Mario Kart are they playing? Nintendo has made a lot of them, after all.
