Top Player Tweets of the Week (November 1st – 8th)
From Chicago Blawkhawks players visiting Capitol Hill to Kyle Palmieri contemplating seasonal decorations, these are your Top Player Tweets of the Week.
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
It's not every day you see a statue of your own teammate in the White House. Looking good @bbicks29 pic.twitter.com/rNjpXKYaSz— 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.
