Former Blackhawk of the Week: Cam Russell

Former Blackhawk of the Week: Cam Russell

Russell was with the team virtually all of the 90s. Cam Russell’s name doesn’t necessarily standout among the blue-liners who skated for the Chicago Blackhawks during the 1990s. When teammates include players like Chris Chelios, Steve Smith and Gary Suter, a player like Russell is going to get overshadowed. But Russell was on the Blackhawks for a decade, appearing in 361 games with the Blackhawks between 1989 and 1998. That number is higher than Suter’s 301 games and Smith’s 317 games, although he was still well shy of Chelios’ mark of 664. A third-round pick (50th overall) of...

Chicago Blackhawks’ Jonathan Toews Reaches 10th Year As Team Captain

It’s challenging to maintain a professional sports leadership position for double-digit years in this day and age, but Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews officially has done just that Ten years ago today, the Chicago Blackhawks named Jonathan Toews their captain at the age of 20 years and 79 days.

How does Marcus Kruger’s return affect Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews?

How does Marcus Kruger’s return affect Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews?

The potential for fewer defensive responsibilities means the Captain needs to get back to his scoring ways. It’s a long, long summer and it’s starting to look like the Chicago Blackhawks aren’t going to make any serious moves in the near future, so let’s dive into another angle of last week’s trade that sent Marian Hossa’s contract and Vinnie Hinostroza to the Arizona Coyotes for a package of players that included old friend Marcus Kruger. On Monday, we offered a reminder of what role Kruger handled during his first stint in Chicago as a harbinger of what he’ll likely be doing...

MBS: Bowman remains coy about Hawks’ offseason direction

MBS: Bowman remains coy about Hawks’ offseason direction

Our daily look at Blackhawks news and the happenings around the hockey world. Chicago Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman met with reporters Tuesday, but didn’t offer any real insight as to what the team’s plans are in regards to potential offseason moves. Stan Bowman said if a trade does happen, it'd likely be closer to the start of the season after teams get a sense of what they have (or don't have). Also said cap space could make them players for in-season moves, which they rarely could do in the past.— Mark Lazerus (@MarkLazerus) July 17, 2018 BLACKHAWKS **Lazerus: Even...

Chicago Blackhawks’ Stan Bowman Expects No Moves In Immediate Future

Chicago Blackhawks Signing Erik Karlsson A Long Shot, Not Impossible

The Chicago Blackhawks recently dumped Marian Hossa‘s $5 million contract on the Arizona Coyotes, freeing up some space to make some additions and fix their current problems. However, with big names in the market, do they have the chance to add some expensive power to their lineup? It’s hard to predict the future, yes.

Ian Mitchell trying to stand out among Blackhawks' many top defensive prospects

The problem with stockpiling young defensemen — at least for the defensemen — is some will end up buried at the bottom of the pile. It’s possible all of the blue-line prospects the Blackhawks have drafted in the first two rounds over the last three seasons will make it to the NHL, but the sheer...
