Jonathan Toews' resume already includes two gold medals and a couple of Stanley Cups, and now the 27-year-old Blackhawks captain has another big accolade to add to his mantel.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Toews has been inducted into the Order of Manitoba, the Canadian province's highest honor. 

Toews — a native of Winnipeg — is one of 12 men and women selected to the order, chosen annually by an independent advisory council.

"It's given out basically for excellence in many respects and for making a contribution to your community, to your providence, to your country, and in some respects on a global scale," said Dwight MacAulay, Manitoba's chief of protocol and secretary of the council, via the Chicago Tribune.

MacAulay said Toews is being recognized for both his reputation as a player, as well as the work he's involved in with Canada's youth.
