Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! 

The Chicago Blackhawks prospect camp is in full swing now with three days already in the books.  If you were looking for Nick Schmaltz to look good and ready to make the team, an untrained pro eye like our says he’s ready.

If your looking ahead both Schmaltz and Tyler Motte are hoping to make limited stops in Rockford and have a permanent home in Chicago for their playing careers which would mean they could possibly hurdle the likes of Tanner Kero or Vincent Hinostroza in the process.

The other player that started getting looks yesterday was Michal Kempny who didn’t look much of a prospect when he had a full beard.  The one thing he will be trying to copy is how smooth Artemi Panarin transition was from the KHL to the NHL last year.

It seems like it Kempny would be hard pressed to make that type of transition, but the fact that it’s is goal makes it pretty admirable and keeps Hawks fans hopeful that there might be a pretty solid third defensive pairing behind Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook, Niklas Hjalmarsson and the recently added Brian Campbell.

While looking ahead at the future, it’s good to see that the Chicago Blackhawks training festival date was announced and that you can buy tickets for the event this Friday. As a Chicago Blackhawks fan we have been spoiled with long playoff runs for years so this summer sure has been a long and tough one to swallow.  Seeing that events are getting planned at least means summer is moving along.
