Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! You know the hockey season is getting closer by the day when the pictures of players painting the logo’s on the ice get online and social media

The Chicago Blackhawks players like Trevor van Riemsdyk painted the Chicago Blackhawks logo on Thursday which is one of the best signs that the Chicago Blackhawks season is about to begin.  Good times for sure.

Usually you see Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane painting the logo, but this year they are playing in the World Cup of hockey which I still haven’t watched more than a period total of the tournament which makes a really bad blogger or just a tournament that has absolutely no meaning or a combination of both or none.

I’m ready for training camp to start today which will not include the stars of the Chicago Blackhawks will not be there, but the real battles we are waiting has to be to see which youngsters grab hold of the opportunity in front of them.

Will Ryan Hartman really be Andrew Shaw, and will Nick Schmaltz be the center the Chicago Blackhawks need to fill a scoring third line.

Will Tyler Motte or Vincent Hinostroza seize a golden opportunity, and will Gustav Forsling force his way on to the Chicago Blackhawks defensive corps.

There are tons of questions and starting today some of those question will start getting answered, and one thing you can always guarantee out of Joel Quenneville is that one unexpected player will make the roster for at least the first week.

The season is closing in on us, and it’s sure getting exciting once again!
