Sidney Crosby Can Mash Too?

He won a gold medal in Vancouver with the Canadian hockey team, the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoffs MVP, and oh yeah, he brought the Stanley Cup back to Chicago for the first time in 49 years.  And things haven’t stopped there….Read More

Patrick Kane Sets Great Example for the Youth of Chicago

After scoring the game-winning goal in overtime of Game 6 that gave the Blackhawks the Stanley Cup, Patrick Kane was told to be on his best behavior at the team’s parade.
