Dakota Community Centre is now named Jonathan Toews Community Centre.

The ceremony followed a parade through the neighbourhood viewed by thousands of cheering fans at which Toews carried the Stanley Cup he won this year as the captain of the victorious Chicago Blackhawks, who had not won a Stanley Cup since 1961.

Earlier today, the province named a lake 150 kilometres north of Flin Flon Toews Lake.
