They look as happy as I feel, and I wasn’t even there! All it takes is a little hockey. Even Jon is giddy – you know that means desperate times. Troy Brouwer doesn’t know if he should trust this new Jon, who looks ready to faint in a princess swoon when the Disney logo comes on screen.
You can read here all about the good times, including goalie penalty shots, mock fights, even a plaid suit. There were choreographed goal celebrations! Chuck and I love nothing more than a good dance routine (cue She’s All That)!

Among the players in attendance were these guys, along with Bobby Ryan, Shawn Thornton, JStaal and many more smiles.
Loads of photos to make you wish for an alternate, non-lockout universe:
Blackhawks, past and present, being flawless.
