The Blackhawks have three more games before the Olympic break, but it’s never too early to begin lining up your lunches at work and setting your DVR to record the Chicago players that will be representing their countries at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
For those that don’t remember, the Blackhawks will be represented by six players on three teams. Patrick Kane will play for the United States, Marian Hossa and Tomas Kopecky will play for Slovakia, and Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook will all play for Canada.
