Hey Ya’ll! Hope your weekend went well and you were able to enjoy a reglation win last night.

On Friday  there were six former ‘Hawks on the ice scoring five points, two goals and three assists.

Saturday saw eighteen former featherheads suit up to score one goal and nine assists for ten points. The two goalies went 1-0-1.

There were twelve former Blackhawks to play on Sunday scoring three goals and three assists for six points. I’d say overall the former ‘Hawks played pretty damn well lately. Good to see the current ‘Hawks pull out a game against a good Western Conference opponent. Enjoy!
