Early in the week, the Chicago Blackhawks were invited to visit President Barack Obama at the White House in Washington, D.C. Prior to meeting the President, the players stopped by the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre to spend time with wounded U.S. soldiers.
It was an absolute honor meeting the soldiers at Walter Reed today. True heroes. http://t.co/XXB26MOaV9— Brandon Bollig (@Bollig87) November 4, 2013
Being huge fans of the game themselves, when they’re not playing hockey, the players are watching it! This week they tweeted supportive and congratulatory messages to fellow players and shared their excitement over each other’s skills.
Congrats Pavel Bure. You were amazing to watch! #russianrocket— Tyler Bozak (@Bozie42) November 2, 2013
Off-the-ice the players are big on spending time with their families of the human and canine variety.
