CHICAGO – If you were missing the Blackhawks’ captain over the past week-and-a-half, a promotional video should tide you over till he returns.
On the same day that head coach Joel Quenneville said that Jonathan Toews would be out for Thursday night’s game with the Devils and likely Saturday’s with Flyers, Bauer hockey released their latest advertisement featuring the Blackhawks star.
It came out on their YouTube page on Thursday morning.
The “Call Your Shot” video features Toews and Maple Leafs rookie Auston Matthews trying to one-up each other in a most unique game of “Shoot The Puck.”
Instead of just hitting the goal, the pair try to hit a number of items around the ice during a break in shooting a commercial for the Nexus 1N Hockey Stick. The videos includes Toews firing a puck at a light on the ice, then trying to go check it out before slipping and falling to the ground in a light-hearted moment.
Toews has been a frequent spokesperson for Bauer, appearing in a number of commercials for the brand in his career. One of his more famous appearances came when he popped a water bottle off the top of the goal and then hit it again in the air with another puck in September of 2015.
