Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Charity Hockey

CHICAGO, IL - APRIL 13: Patrick Kane
CHICAGO, IL - APRIL 13: Patrick Kane /

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! We are still a month away from training camp and two months away from the regular season starting, but yesterday there was a charity hockey game that involved Patrick Kane so there was a very very little buzz in the air about hockey yesterday. 

No matter what anyone says about the month of August, baseball isn’t enough to get you through even though NFL training camps have kicked off and fantasy football talk has begun.

Yes, hockey is still a niche sport for most, but it was nice to see Patrick Kane and Vinnie Hinostroza playing in a charity hockey game yesterday.

It was amazing to see all the pics from people on Twitter yesterday, even of just seeing Kane in the airport.

No, I didn’t follow the game but I saw updates on Twitter throughout the day while I was relaxing at a minor league baseball game while my staycation comes to an end.

I must say staycations are the most relaxing when you have enough things planned throughout the week, but I’m still ready for Chicago Blackhawks hockey on the ice this fall.  It sure does feel like this summer is dragging and dragging and dragging on.  So thanks for some hockey news yesterday!
