Blackhawks at the White House
Private time with the President
The Blackhawks players, coaches and front office staffers and their families enjoyed a private tour of the White House during the one o'clock hour. The team then took a private meeting with President Obama at 2. Heady stuff for all of the team, but especially American-born players Patrick Kane and 19-year-old Nick Leddy.

The President's remarks will be coming up soon outside on the South Lawn, and the White House buzz is this championship ceremony is particularly special with any number of Chicagoans working for the Administration.
Quote of the Day

I think when you build a team, you look at pairs, and I think the pair of [Voracek and Giroux] is very good, certainly one of the top pairs in the League.
