Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Just when you thought it would never return, the NHL preseason schedule kicks off tonight for the Hawks as they face-off against the defending Stanley Cup Champions Pittsburgh Penguins.
The calendar changed from summer to fall last week, and now for Chicago Blackhawks fans the summer is really over when our favorite team (well some of our favorite players) take to the ice for the preseason opener.
The Chicago Blackhawks will not be starting all the stars tonight, and actually it will be loaded with youngsters trying to make their marks with some veterans sprinkled in. The veterans that will see the ice tonight will be led by the return of Brian Campbell to the Chicago Blackhawks roster.
The Stanley Cup Champion from 2010 is back and poised to fill the Johnny Oduya role that the Chicago Blackhawks sorely missed last year. The other player that looks to have secured a spot by his play at the World Cup of hockey is Michal Kempny who will probably be playing alongside Trevor van Riemsdyk
The Chicago Blackhawks roster will filled with young studs like Tyler Motte and Nick Schmaltz and the newest hot shot Alexandre Fortin. This should be a fun game to watch just to see what the future of the Chicago Blackhawks holds. Here is a pic of the rest of the roster for tonight’s game.
The best news of all is that hockey with all the sweaters being Chicago Blackhawks jerseys returns tonight to the United Center, and all is right in the world again.
