Ironically about a decade ago, Chicago Blackhawks forward Jonathan Toews scored three times at the IIHF World Junior Gold Medal game to help Team Canada beat Patrick Kane's Team USA at the 2007 tournament.
Ten years later, Patrick Kane will finally have his redemption after winning a bet between the two on the outcome of this year's championship between Team Canada and Team USA who found themselves in the finals, which came down to a shootout once again.
The Hawks captain will now have to dress up in full Team USA gear and might have to do a couple of laps around the practice rinks. We really look forward to seeing the photo evidence!
The beat is in similar fashion to the one NBA superstar Lebron James lost when his hometown Cleveland Indians lost to the Chicago Cubs, and James was forced to wear a full Cubs uniform.
This wasn't the only bet in the NHL that we know about, as Toronto Maple Leafs rookie sensation won his bet against head coach Mike Babcock. Matthews will be bringing home a very expensive bottle of wine thanks to that bet.
Sounds like Toews will have to dress in Team USA gear (like LeBron James did w/a full Cubs uniform) to pay off the bet with Kane— Judd Sirott (@Judd_Sirott) January 7, 2017
