Jonathan Toews is taking his role as the captain of the Chicago Blackhawks seriously.

Toews was named captain before the start of the 2008-09 season and now that he is 24 years of age, it means more to him. "I want to improve on how I am in the locker room, on the bench, as an individual and just bringing that positive energy, especially when things maybe don't go right," Toews said. "I'm trying to stay even-keeled and not get frustrated. That's something I've been focusing on." Toews has already lifted the Stanley Cup over his head as captain and it doesn't get better than that.
