Jonathan Toews - Dakota's 'Hometown Hero'

Ever wonder how the current facilities at the Dakota Community Centre got to be named after the extremely talented Jonathan Toews, Captain of the Chicago Black Hawks and one of the best and most decorated hockey players in the world?

Toews was born in 1988 in Winnipeg, where at a very young age began his hockey career playing for the Dakota Lazers and continued to excel through all levels of minor hockey in South St. Vital. As the familiar story goes, he went on to play college hockey at the University of North Dakota before being drafted in the 2006 NHL entry draft. With the Blackhawks since 2007, his hard-work and incredible talent has lead them to three Stanley Cup Victory's in a five year period! He is also two-time winter Olympic gold medalist, and has been awarded a plethora of other honours including the prestigious Conn Smythe Trophy. Notwithstanding his rocket rise to fame, Jonathan and his family remain staunch supporters of the Centre and the growing list of opportunities provided to the community at the grassroots level.
