On Monday afternoon, once the lockers were cleaned out the exit interviews with the local media had been completed, the Blackhawks made a little news. Well, at least one forward did.
Jonathan Toews has already said he’ll pass on playing for Canada, but another Hawks forward will wear a “C” in Denmark at the World Championships.
USA Hockey announced that Patrick Kane will be the captain of the US team at the upcoming 2018 IIHF Men’s World Championship set for May 4-20 in Copenhagen and Herning, Denmark. Kane won silver with the US at the 2010 Winter Olympics; he also represented his country at the 2014 Winter Olympics.
Brandon Saad, who is apparently getting married in July, will not play for the US, however.
