Every year around playoff time, people of the hockey world and Blackhawks fans alike tend to get this unstable idea that the Hawks are weak in the net minder position. But why is this the notion that so many have? Corey Crawford has been one of the most consistent goaltenders over the past four postseasons. He has posted an average of .916 Sv% and a 2.29 GAA during that time...

The post Jonathan Toews Ice Bucket Challenge appeared first on Committed Indians.
We’ve seen a lot of Ice Bucket Challenge videos. So many that it’s going to take something special to catch our attention. Jonathan Toews’ Ice Bucket Challenge video where he shows off a bit of impressive balance was enough to do the trick. The ladies are going to love this one.
There’s just one problem – hold the camera horizontally. You’d think people would know this by now.
Teuvo Teravainen normally spends summers in his native Finland relaxing following the previous hockey season and preparing for the next.
These days, the Chicago Blackhawks’ top prospect has a new residence.
“The gym has been my home this summer,” Teravainen said Friday via phone from Toronto, where he is participating in the 2014 NHLPA Rookie Showcase. “I’m working with...
Jeremy Morin has finally earned a spot on the Chicago Blackhawks, but what line does he end up on this season? With his newly signed 2-year, one-way contract, Morin finds himself in a pretty comfortable spot not having to worry about being sent down to Rockford. This should give him time to find his game and see where he fits in to the Blackhawks system.
Morin was drafted in the...
The signing of veteran goaltender Michael Leighton may have been a head-scratcher for most Chicago Blackhawk fans but there really shouldn’t be a problem or concern with adding a veteran goalie. Leighton, 33, spent last season with the KHL’s Donbass Donetsk but has spent time with the Hawks, Predators, Flyers, and Hurricanes in his first stint in the NHL. With the Blackhawks...
from Rory Boylen of The Hockey News,
When THN’s seven-person panel sat down to come up with our rankings of the 30 NHL logos, we were basically in full agreement which team would be No. 1.
We didn’t want history to influence our decisions. The Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens sit outside the top 10 for that reason. Ranking all the Original Six 1-6 is boring...
The Orlando Solar Bears announced on Tuesday that they have signed defenseman Mike Keenan and forward David Gilbert. The two players will join the ECHL affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs for the 2014-15 season.
Keenan spent last season playing with the Stockton Thunder and the AHL’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers. During 41 games with the Sound Tigers, the defenseman put up three goals...
Lets set things straight. Patrick Sharp isn’t going anywhere.
…for the time being.
It is all but set in stone that when the Blackhawks take the ice on October 9th against the Dallas Stars your beloved #10 will be in his familiar position on a wing along with fellow linemates Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa.
Will he last the entire season with the Blackhawks, though, is anyone’s...
Back in 2010 the Chicago Blackhawks used the 24th overall pick to draft a talented but very young Kevin Hayes. At the time Hayes was still in High School and decided to go to college, spending the last four years playing for and often winning with Boston College. When he graduated this year the hockey world was rife with speculation about where he’d sign. Having been drafted by...
On Monday morning, the Blackhawks announced the team has signed goaltender Michael Leighton to a one-year contract. Last season, Leighton posted a .933 save percentage in 42 games with Donbass in the KHL. He last appeared in the NHL with … Continue reading →The post Blackhawks Sign Michael Leighton appeared first on Committed Indians.
In his fourth year for the Blackhawks, Nick Leddy continued to be a solid source of offense from the blue line. He scored 31 points through 82 games, placing third among Chicago defensemen. Leddy also tied with Seabrook for most goals from the blue line. One of Leddy’s greatest assets, however, is his ability to start a breakout with his speed.
Leddy unquestionably has great...
If you're transfixed by the Kevin Hayes sweepstakes, the Providence Journal's Mark Divver reports that former Chicago Blackhawks first-round pick and 6'4," 216-pound power forward and Boston College graduate is going about the "wining and dining process" in the usual manner:
Office of Robert Murray, agent for Kevin Hayes, will be busy today. Meetings...

Earlier this summer, Patrick Kane took a photo with a young hockey fan in Buffalo after a dominating ten-point performance in a beer league hockey game. The Blackhawks star made a conscious effort to cover up the young boy’s shirt, which featured the logo of a ‘Hawks division rival, the St. Louis Blues. Well, history has repeated itself. Kane recently snapped a photo with another...
