Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! 

The Chicago Blackhawks are on their annual summer break and like the rest of the NHL are looking forward to the NHL Draft as the next thing on the NHL calendar.

With that being said one could say that the summer festivities are breaking ground, but on the literal point of view, the Chicago Blackhawks did break ground on their new practice facility this week.

This facility has a lot to look forward to with it containing 2 NHL size rinks for Chicago Blackhawks practice, but it also will be there for kids practices and training.

This will be a great addition for the franchise in that it will help their own team have it’s own practice facilities, but it’s also going to be able to help out the community with rinks for them to use.

This of course won’t be the first franchise to build such a site with a team in the Central Division the Nashville Predators already having such a facility that really brings the community together.

Breaking ground is always exciting, and as a Chicago Blackhawks fan this one is pretty cool
