Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Convention Finale

By Keith Schultz

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! 

The Chicago Blackhawks convention comes to a close today after two days of fun and panels for both players and fans.  Our staff writer Sean Fitzgerald has been at the convention all weekend long and has sent some great pictures to our Twitter feed.

The convention is missing the Captain Jonathan Toews this year, but there are a lot of former and current great Chicago Blackhawks there this year for this years crowd of excited Blackhawks fans.

The good thing about the convention ending today is that the summer’s calendar of events are now complete and next up is the World Cup of Hockey In Toronto which of course leads to the Chicago Blackhawks kicking off training camp.

I’m sure we have beat this to death, but this summer seems like it’s never going to end with the Hawks getting knocked out of the playoffs in the first round.  If you are a fan of the Winnipeg Jets and you routinely miss the playoffs the summer must feel like a longer season than the actual NHL season.

The Hawks have made some moves and will be counting on kids filling roles this season, so now we have 2 months to try figure out everything before the season, and in the end Joel Quenneville will do everything completely different than we think he should and it everything will be back to normal for all of us!
