Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane top jersey sales - again

If you're good, you sell jerseys. Lots and lots of jerseys.

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

It's no secret the Chicago Blackhawks are one of the NHL's most popular franchises. Three Stanley Cups in six years is an incredible amount of success to behold; combine that with the sheer size and popularity of Chicago and an extremely effective, dedicated marketing team and you've got a franchise that a lot of people love and adore.

And when you love something, you buy stuff that represents it. Like jerseys.

And when you buy a jersey, you get a name on the back, usually. Especially if it's for a team that has iconic, franchise players skating for it... You know, like the Blackhawks.

To that end, the most popular jersey sales of the 2015-16 should come as no surprise:

Jonathan Toews is on the up-and-up. He had the most popular jersey throughout the 2015 calendar year, with Patrick Kane behind him; in 2014, however, he was actually in third place, behind Kane and Sidney Crosby.

The things being the leader of yet another Cup-winning team can do, eh?
