Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links-Only The Banner Remains

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! We are only 2 days away from the 6th Stanley Cup banner being raised at the United Center on Wednesday night when the Blackhawks go up against the New York Rangers.  The banner raising is all that remains in the third summer of Stanley in 6 seasons.

If you missed our post last night, the Chicago Blackhawks revealed their Stanley Cup rings that were handed out to the team last night.

so after parading the Stanley Cup around the world all summer long and after getting their names engraved on the Stanley Cup that also was revealed recently, it’s time for the Chicago Blackhawks to finally get back to work.

The Blackhawks played mostly their B-team in most games this preseason, but on Saturday night they gave all of the fans something to get really excited about when they did their own revealing by putting #72 on the ice in Artemi Panarin.  He was very impressive and after fighting an upper-body injury all training camp really gave fans something to look forward to this season.

All that remains is the banner raising on Wednesday night, so here are some morning links to kick off your Game Week!
