Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Get Well Soon Edzo!
By Keith Schultz
Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! I’m sure like most of you, last night was tough hopping on Twitter to see that Eddie Olczyk had been diagnosed with a form of colon cancer.
My first thought was Get Well Soon Edzo! Eddie has always been a fighter from the southside of Chicago, and I believe all Chicago Blackhawks fans think the same way that he’s going to fight hard to beat cancer.
Secondly, this tweet says it all in less than 140 characters, and that is of course everyone in hockey is behind Eddie!
Cancer is a terrible thing, but luckily so much money has been put into research and development that it can be conquered especially if it’s caught early on.

What Doc Emrick said in this tweet by Mark Lazarus is very touching as well.
There are times when Eddie and Pat Foley get too yuckity yuck yuck for me, but Eddie has always been one of us growing up. He was from Palos and I grew up in Worth and no matter what he’s a southside suburban kid just like me. So I will be rooting for him everyday during this long road ahead! Get well Eddie Get Well!
