It's not often you see a practice scrap but we had one this morning between Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith, two long-time veterans of the Chicago Blackhawks.
I love the Hawks win or lose but the 2010s Blackhawks hit different.
If I'm honest, a large chunk of what I write are what I call "Player Pieces" and I love writing them more than anything else.
It was rumored that Brent Seabrook, Keith's fellow defenseman, was asked if he wanted to waive his No Trade Clause but those rumors turned out to be false.
As a surprise to no one, Keith said that he plans and wants to stay in Chicago.
According to TSN's Insider, Pierre LeBrun, the Chicago Blackhawks will ask veteran Duncan Keith if he would like to be traded before the trade deadline on February 25th.
Tonight the Chicago Blackhawks take on the Carolina Hurricanes in new coach Justin Colliton's first game coaching the Chicago Blackhawks.
This has been a game changing week for the Chicago Blackhawks. For starters the team went 0-3-0 in the games from October 31st until November 6th, a truly devastating road trip that brought back flashbacks of last season. The other monumental move has been the firing of Head Coach Joel Quinneville for Jeremy Colliton, a 33-year-old coach coming up from the Rockford IceHogs.
The first game of the 2017-2018 season, it seemed like this season was going to be amazing for the Chicago Blackhawks! Beating the defending Stanley Cup Champions, the Pittsburgh Penguins, 10-1 in the opening game of the season made fans feel as if the Dynasty was going to live on.. Sadly, that thought was short lived.
