Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane accounted for 137 points in the 2013-'14 regular season.

Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks are both seeking to nearly double their current salaries with a deal that would bring them both $12 million per season, reports TSN's Bob McKenzie.

The forwards are both represented by agent Pat Brisson, and currently have matching contracts that pay them $6.3 million a season, according to ESPN's Katie Strang. Brisson recently opened extension negotiations with the club by asking to make his clients the NHL's only players averaging over $10 million a season.

Kane and Toews have led Chicago to two Stanley Cups and accounted for 37 points in the team's recent run to the Western Conference final.

The leagues current highest paid player is currently Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals, who make an average of $9.5 million a year on his current contract, according to CapGeek.com.
