The Chicago Blackhawks have acquired David Toews, younger brother of Jonathan Toews, from the New York Islanders in exchange for future considerations. David was added to the Blackhawks roster for the Oshawa Rookie Tournament this weekend in Ontario.
David Toews, 21, had 20 goals and 28 assists in 60 games for the Brandon Wheat Kings (WHL) last season. He also had five assists in six postseason games. David was the Islanders third-round selection (66th overall) in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He played two seasons at the University of North Dakota, where he had nine goals and 17 assists in 55 games.

Is there anyone who wouldn't want to play with Patrick Kane?
Jeremy Roenick joined In The Loop on Wednesday to discuss which current Blackhawks he would like to play with, and naturally, the reigning MVP topped his list.
"He would be my No. 1 choice," Roenick said. "There's no question about it."
But Roenick said there are two more Blackhawks he would like to lace them up with.
"I wouldn't mind playing with (Artemi) Panarin also," he said. "I would love to play with Jonathan Toews. I think I'd play well with all three of them."
Roenick also gave high praise to coach Joel Quenneville, saying he is one of the best coaches in all of sports. Roenick even compared Quenneville to "the Bill Belichick of hockey."
See what else the Roenick had to say in the video above.
