Blackhawks Dump & Chase- 5 Year Anniversary Edition

Good morning Blackhawks fans! Today is our Five year anniversary of Blackhawk Up! The site has had some great editors in its short history.  Jeffery Bartl from Cheer The Anthem founded Blackhawk Up, Frank Rekas took over the realms before moving on to The Rat Trick and then to his present home Panther Parkway, and Greg Boysen who was my editor before moving on to Second City Hockey.

My interest in Blackhawk Up came back when Bartl and company ran the site and it was the first app I downloaded when looking for Blackhawks news.  They had some really good features like Boxing and the Daily Esposito. I came on in early 2012 and the rest is history. We really appreciate everyone that drops by the site and keeps coming back! Here are today’s links to start your weekend.
