The Blackhawk Up podcast is back for episode six as Jimmy and Patrick jump in on all things Blackhawks this season. From the mistake, the rebuild made to the future plan of one NHL franchise today was a fun episode to record.

Patrick and Jimmy also have some special news they got to right off the top of the podcast. Jeremiah Lee is joining the podcast as the third host of the show! It was great hearing from him and a great opportunity to talk about his latest article on the rebuild.

The Blackhawks play a game this week.

While it has been a long offseason there finally is a game this week. The Blackhawks will take on the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday in what should be a good game. The Red Wings have a pretty good farm system, so the preseason should be when they thrive especially early on.

While it is just a preseason game hopefully the team stands up and plays a great game against the Wings. For a lot of the players, this could be the first opportunity to play with a lot of fans after last season, and with all the competition battles one would assume everyone will be ready to play on Wednesday!

The Podcast:

As of now, the podcast will be going to a new schedule moving forward. Jeremiah, Jimmy, and Patrick will have two episodes a week, on Monday and Thursday. With the game on Wednesday this week though there will be no episode on Thursday this week.

The Blackhawk Up Podcast wants to hear from you! Listener questions is a segment that will be introduced on the Thursday edition of the show, so go ahead and get any questions you want to be answered in on this article and they could be answered next time you listen!
