Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links-Farewell June

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Well another June is about to pass and another Stanley Cup has been won in another June. The month of June has been very good for the Chicago Blackhawks ever since they drafted Jonathan Toews on June 24, 2006 and ever since the rest is history.  The Chicago Blackhawks have won 3 Cups in 6 seasons and will be looking forward to another season of playing in June come 2016, but first Stan Bowman has a whole lot of work to do.

Bowman still needs to sign Brandon Saad and Marcus Kruger while finding some trade partners for Patrick Sharp, Bryan Bickell and hopefully Kris Versteeg.  So as you can see there is a lot of things to look forward to in the month of July as the month of June comes to a close.

June was a great month to be a Chicago Blackhawks fans, and here are some morning links to finish off the month!
