One of Canada’s Olympic hockey heroes is getting the gold-medal treatment in next week’s issue of Sports Illustrated.
Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews, who scored Canada’s game-winning goal against Sweden at the Sochi Winter Olympics, will front the magazine’s cover in Canada in a feature dubbed the “Greatest Olympic Squad Ever Assembled.” Toews now boasts two Olympic gold medals to go along with two Stanley Cup championships, two world junior hockey titles and one world hockey championship. Not bad for a 25-year-old.
For the U.S., readers get teen skiing sensation Mikaela Shiffrin, who won gold in the women’s slalom event.
And for good measure, in SI’s NASCAR region, Daytona 500 winner Dale Earnhardt, Jr. gets the front page treatment.
