Michal Kempny Signing Helps Defensive Depth For Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks signing Michal Kempny is a move that will benefit the team’s defensive depth moving forward.

Pivotal offseason lies ahead for the Blackhawks

It’s odd to think that at this time of the year the Chicago Blackhawks are focused on the offseason rather than contending for a Stanley Cup. The Hawks tend to deal with there mortal enemy the salary cap only after they are champions. The Hawks went all in this year.
