Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane have dance-off rematch

Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane may be on the same team, but their competitive drive has helped spark a friendly on-ice rivalry. That rivalry spread to the dance floor last year during the Chicago Blackhawks Convention as the two participated in a dance-off. One year and a pair of 8-year, $84 million contracts later, the two teammates had a rematch. It’s clear Kane won the much...

Jonathan Toews And Patrick Kane Have Another “Dance” Competition

For the second consecutive year, Blackhawks stars Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane were challenged by fans to have a dance-off at the annual Blackhawks convention and – for the second straight year – they reluctantly obliged. It was Round 2 for the “Tazer Moonwalk” (originally made famous after the ‘Hawks cup-clinching win in Boston) versus the “Kaner Shuffle” on stage...

Brad Richards on center stage as No. 2 center

Newly acquired Blackhawks center Brad Richards didn't get the typical free-agent news conference when he signed. There was no horde of reporters for a jersey presentation. No, the first real chance Richards had to speak publicly came Saturday before more than 2,000 fans at the Blackhawks Convention. And he received a standing ovation as he took the Hilton Chicago stage next...

With big expectations, Saad not worried about contract

Brandon Saad would’ve loved to have his own Jonathan Toews or Patrick Kane contract moment this summer. No, we’re not talking in terms of massive money; the Blackhawks forward hasn’t gotten to that point yet. But much like Toews and Kane, he could have signed a new extension this summer. That didn’t happen, but Saad’s hardly worried about it. He has plenty of time to...

Move to Blackhawks a new challenge for Richards

Brad Richards is just getting to know the Chicago Blackhawks, so forgive him if his approach is still a little formal. After signing a one-year contract with the Blackhawks on July 1 worth a reported $2 million, the veteran center is meeting most of his new teammates this weekend at the Seventh Annual Blackhawks Fan Convention. The event, hosted at the Chicago Hilton, drew an estimated...

Chicago Blackhawks’ annual summer convention likely includes players who will be cap casualties

The Chicago Blackhawks are holding their annual summer fan convention--something I wish other teams would emulate--in the Windy City this weekend, so the warm fuzzies have begun in earnest. Capgeek will tell you that there's a $2.216 million elephant in the room, however, an elephant that will ensure that not every player who attends the convention will start the season with...

Posted to Chicago BlackhawksThe whole ‘bandwagon fan’ phenomenon in Chicago may never fade, even though it should.

Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews happy to be ‘locked up’ in Chicago

Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane didn’t really consider leaving the Chicago Blackhawks. Toews and Kane chose to avoid hitting the open market as free agents July 1, 2015 by signing identical eight-year contract extensions on July 9, reportedly worth $84 million each. “I remember when I was drafted, meeting other players from other teams [who told] me how great the city of Chicago...

Adam Clendening Says He Is Ready for the “Big Show”

Posted to Gorilla Salad's Play LandThe Blackhawks are right in the middle of their prospect camp and one of the few “NHL ready” players there this year firmly believes he is ready to make the jump. It isn’t far fetched at all to think that Clendening will be up this year. The biggest reason is the Blackhawks are over the cap and most likely will move one of their defensemen...

A Second Look At Kris Versteeg

Once again, Kris Versteeg finds himself the discussion of trade possibilities for the Blackhawks, in order to relieve cap space. At 2.2 million, it won’t clear enough space for Chicago to be under the cap. However, fans may be willing to let him go after a poor showing in the 2014 playoffs. He scored only three points in the 15 games he played, and ended up having box seats for...

9-Year-Old Hockey Fan Recreates Patrick Kane’s Puck-Handling Viral Video

Patrick Kane’s moves on the ice are so easy to reproduce a 9-year-old could do them. While no one in their right mind would ever make that claim, it appears that one young hockey fan was up for the challenge. After hearing the news that Kane and teammate Jonathan Toews signed eight-year contract extensions with the Chicago Blackhawks last week, 9-year-old Tommy Murray was inspired...
