The Daily: Blackhawks Camp Opens Today; Roster Battles



Training camps across the league are opening which makes way for the preseason, and then finally, a regular season slate of games. This obviously includes the Chicago Blackhawks, who open today.

In Detroit, general manager Steve Yzerman expects many of the “Yzerplan” prospects to challenge for spots. In Pittsburgh, a familiar face returns. Camp in Boston sees a new captain with Brad Marchand.

Here at Chicago Hockey Now, I’m excited to cover my first full season of hockey. It’s a blast being able to be part of it and beyond that, I look forward to looking at different angles and not only keeping tabs on the Blackhawks, but also the prospects scattered throughout the world.

Here’s to what can be an exciting year.

Blackhawks In Case You Missed It

  • Chris Chelios once went to the luxury box to drink with Michael Jordan–after playing half of the game against the Blackhawks
  • Kyle Davidson is sticking to his plan as training camp starts for the Blackhawks
  • No C? No Problem. It’s already pretty obvious what will happen when it’s time to name a new captain
