As we mentioned here at ProHockeyTalk on Friday, with several NHL players getting involved in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, it takes something a little more than dumping a bucket of water on your head while standing in your bathtub to impress.

Enter Jonathan Toews, the Blackhawks captain added a little style to his video posted by the team on Saturday:

In the video, Toews challenges, among others, New York Giants defensive end Israel Idonije, who was quick to respond:

    Him getting doused by the two buckets and falling off was staged, but still funny. But where was the ice? I want proof that water’s COLD, dammit! 😀

    As an ardent, sexy and values-driven fan of the planet’s ‘greatest’ professional ice hockey team (LA Kings), I find myself ‘obliged’ to tip my hat to Jonathan Toews for his efforts in assisting with this decent cause … God bless the man and may God bless all others who do the same.

    *** somewhere out on the great plain ***

    Blom Feather: who is this noble rider that goes before us down there in the valley ?

    Ten Bears: I believe it may be Dances With Kane ? … the leader of the Blackhawk nation ?

    Crazy Dog: yeah, well whatever … I say we waste the mo-effer right now !

    Blom Feather: no brother … he is a ‘proud’ leader of his people and he is a ‘good’ man !

    Ten Bears: indeed … and though we’ve defeated his people, we must continue to respect them …

    Crazy Dog: okay, I guess you guys are right ? … anyway, let’s find that queen Kane and fix him eh ?

    Blom Feather: roger that ! :)
