BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Chicago Blackhawks stars Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews were married last weekend at Kane's million dollar mansion in Hamburg, New York.

WKBW reported the news last night at 10pm with a copy of the wedding certificate and a You Can Play video recorded at the apartment the two share in Chicago.

This news will undoubtedly be a shock not only to the NHL but the North American sporting world at large.

The families of both players were contacted, but they declined to comment. Pat Brisson, agent to both Kane and Toews, did release a statement in the early hours of the this morning.

Kane and Toews were rookies together during the 2007/8 season and have been an integral component in the team that won themselves their Stanley Cup win in 2010. Their dedication to the sport is unquestioned and their choice to both get married and come out into the public eye with their relationship is something we at TSN fully support.
