Here’s little Jonathan Toews out on the ice

Look at how red his cheeks are!

Jonathan Toews is one of the best hockey players in the world today. That didn’t happen by accident, though; we know that he’s always had a very intense drive to succeed, ever since he was a a kid.

Speaking of young Toews...

Aw, this is adorable. Look at how red his cheeks are! They match his Canada jersey.

It’s always awesome to see what professionals looked like long before then, when they were just kids playing the game. Little Toews is definitely up there.

For the record, it looks like he’s doing this to spread awareness for a Canadian Tire contest, and for the First Shift, a program that helps kids get their start in hockey who might not have been able to otherwise.

That all sounds like a great deal - although little Toews is definitely going to be hard to top.
