I'm a former Chicago Catholic Hockey Leaguer who was born, raised, and still resides on the Southwest Side of the city. I was raised on the Chicago Blackhawks and for many years that seemed more a curse than a blessing--which has given me a unique gratitude and appreciation for the once in a lifetime experience we as Hawks fans are currently enjoying. I'm a new addition to Blackhawk Up, but couldn't be more excited to join the awesome team here. Duncan Keith is a demigod.
