Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks Fans!

The Chicago Blackhawks have seen there fair share of snubs while the NHL Awards have been announced this past week especially Jonathan Toews missing out on both the Selke and the Mark Messier Award.

Well, today the Chicago Blackhawks finally hit their second finalist list when Patrick Kane was named one of the three finalist for the Ted Lindsay Award for Most Outstanding Player in the NHL.  This seems just like the Hart trophy for MVP except for the fact that this award has been handed out only since 1970 while the Hart Trophy has been being awarded since 1924.

The big announcement will come tomorrow when the Hart Trophy Finalist are named and Patrick Kane is expected to be leading that list.

The funny thing about all the awards is the Calder Trophy and the fact that nobody and I mean nobody outside of Chicago Blackhawks fans wants Artemi Panarin to win the rookie of the year award.

During the World Championships broadcast yesterday morning between Canada and the USA, the announcers were giving ever stat imaginable out for Connor McDavid to win the award even though Panarin had the most points by a landslide.  Sure, McDavid would have probably won it easily if he had stayed healthy, but that’s not how the story transpired, and in the end the Breadman should be getting the Calder Trophy when the Award is announced next month.
