Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans.  The Chicago Blackhawks played their third straight preseason game in three nights and it showed as the teams got outscored early and often in the 6-3 loss. 

The Chicago Blackhawks put out a makeshift unit on Sunday night at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, and since it was such a rag tag unit of prospects and players that won’t be playing big minutes it was pretty much a waste to watch so I didn’t watch much do to getting home late from work.

The Chicago Blackhawks are now only 9 days away from opening night, and their Captain and #1 goalie haven’t seen training camp yet, so let’s not get carried away from any of these outcomes so far during the preseason with the team and coaching staff in two different places for the first week or so.

The one player that has been a big name all summer has been Alexandre Fortin, and he scored the first goal of the game for the Hawks in the first period although it only put them down 3-1 at the time.

Coach Joel Quenneville has watched Fortin all summer long and he this is some of the things he had to say about the prospect.

The Hawks need some young talent in the pipeline after watching players that were thought to be in the core disappear in recent years like Brandon Saad and Teuvo Teravainen.  A player like Fortin is something Stan Bowman needed for the system.  We shall see where he ends up when training camp ends, but one thing is for sure Fortin has had a great summer.
