Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks preseason viewing schedule was released yesterday and so now all i can think of #IsItSeptmenberYet

As someone that grew up in the 1980’s with only road games on television if you had Sportsvision, the fact that every preseason game is televised is something you couldn’t have told me was possible way back when.

It’s still amazing to me that Rocky is Bill Wirtz’s son to be honest.  The Hawks have gone from the worst franchise in all of sports to the best in the NHL.  They are first class in every shape, way, and form.

This includes every preseason game getting televised.  Here is the tweet from Tracey Myers about this year’s preseason slate of games.

So, it’s home and home games this year against as always the Detroit Red Wings and included in this is the Columbus Blue Jackets and Boston Bruins.

Of course none of these games matter, but with the amount of prospects that need to see playing time, this year will be way more exciting than the past couple of preseasons.

The one surprise from last year was Alexandre Fortin who will not be 100% by the time prospect camp rolls around next week after offseason injury, but he showed the franchise so much during prospect camp and the rookie tourney that it earned him a contract with the team.

I think that is what everyone is hoping to see this year that some prospect has made a huge leap in his game, that he will force the Chicago Blackhawks to make a choice.

September is right around the corner…. right?
