Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! It’s so close to September that hockey is almost in the air. 

With the end of this season of Game of Thrones coming Sunday night, All of the Winter is Coming Memes can go away for at least a year or so now.  With that it made me think that September is coming real soon.

The month of September does have a lot jammed packed into it without a regular season game included.  The only thing about this upcoming season that is a bit sad is that the NHL won’t be going to the Olympics, but with the season starting on October 5th it feels like the NHL is still going.

So what do we have to look forward to you ask? That’s easy for me to answer, Hockey!!  First is the Rookie Tournament at Traverse City.  This as stated in earlier posts has been quite a bit lackluster, but this year the Hawks prospects have me really excited to see what happens in this tourney that is right around the corner.

Then, the Chicago Blackhawks will head to training camp which ends at the Chicago Blackhawks Training Camp Festival.  This year there is a Patrick Kane bobblehead giveaway at the Festival which I’m sure will bring some long lines waiting to get into the United Center.

Preseason hockey should be pretty competitive with plenty of youngsters trying to make the roster instead of heading to Rockford.

All of this gets us through the final month without hockey! Here are some morning links to start your day!
