Blackhawks honor Olympians
By Jesse Rogers
The Chicago Blackhawks honored their six Olympic participants, including four medal winners, with a pregame ceremony before they faced off against the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday night.
Each player was called to center ice after a video tribute of the Olympic tournament. As Patrick Kane skated to his spot wearing his silver medal chants of “U-S-A, U-S-A” overtook the United Center. He and Jonathan Toews had the loudest applause from the sell-out crowd. Toews was voted best forward of the tournament.
