Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- September On The Horizon

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! I know it’s August and the NHL updates are few and far between, but when you look at your 10 day forecast you can see the month of September is on the horizon which means a whole lot if your a hockey fan and especially if your a Chicago Blackhawks fan.

Yes, it’s been a short summer, but when your biggest Twitter item of the night is WWE Summerslam then you know it’s time for hockey season to hurry up and get here.  Sure, the players need a lot more rest especially when their season usually ends sometime in June, yet like I said before we are ready for training camp, Notre Dame, trade rumors and our beloved Chicago Blackhawks back on the ice.

Of course in our haste for the season to begin, there also is a dark cloud that everyone is ignoring for the past week and that’s what’s going to happen with the Patrick Kane investigation in the Buffalo area, and what will Gary Bettman and the NHL do when anything is announced in the case.

There are a lot of questions and not very many answers but like we said September is getting close! Here are some morning links to kick off your work week.
