Jonathan Toews was 9 years old when Marian Hossa made his NHL debut for the Ottawa Senators. Not surprisingly, the offensively gifted yet defensively responsible two-way star quickly became one of Toews’ favorite players. To Toews, Hossa was no Marty Havlat, but he was close. So the first time Toews played against Hossa — Oct. 27, 2007, at the United Center against the Atlanta Thrashers — it was a big deal. And when Hossa walked into the Blackhawks’ dressing room as a teammate for the first time in 2009, that was a big deal to Toews, too.
