Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- 2017 Training Camp Begins

TAMPA, FL - JUNE 13: Patrick Sharp
TAMPA, FL - JUNE 13: Patrick Sharp /

Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The best news of all happened yesterday when my Twitter feed was nothing but Chicago Blackhawks training camp updates! 

First off Michal Rozsival didn’t pass the physical so he won’t be participating in training camp so if you’re like me, you’re aren’t very upset about this news.

Secondly, everyone kept saying about what great shape Patrick Sharp was in which at 35 and coming off a pretty major surgery is really good news at least at the start of camp.

The line everyone talked about the most of Brandon SaadJonathan ToewsRichard Panik was already put on the ice and looked like a pretty “forceful” line according to Patrick Kane.

The one worry everyone had was that Patrick Kane wouldn’t be able to find his scoring touch without his buddy Artemi Panarin out there seemed kind of silly on the first day of camp when Kane in a scrimmage just easily scored 2 goals.

It will be interesting to see who plays on what lines after that top line.  One line that was put together that looked pretty good was Patrick SharpArtem AnisimovRyan Hartman.

This line never played yesterday but I really would like to see it would be Kane with Nick Schmaltz and Alex DeBrincat.

When seeing all the names and veterans out there it does make me wonder if there is any room for John Hayden in Chicago this season.

So many question, so little answers don’t you just love the opening of training camp!!
