There was never a doubt that it was going to happen, but the Blackhawks officially announced todaythat both Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane have agreed to eight-year contract extensions that will keep both in Chicago through the 2022-23 season.
The new deals come with an annual cap hit of $10.5 million per season, though that won’t start until the 2015-16 season, this year. Either way, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews are now the highest-paid players in NHL history.
And they deserve to be.
