Watch the Hawks play Davos on NHL.com

Monday, 09.28.2009 / 9:52 AM / 2009 Compuware NHL Premiere

NHL.com

Hockey fans can see the Chicago Blackhawks in action against HC Davos in Zurich today right here at NHL.com, starting at 2:15 p.m. ET. 

The Blackhawks are playing Davos today in an exhibition game prior to Tuesday's Victoria Cup match against ZSC Lions, also in Zurich.

For the Hawks, these exhibitions represent the last tune-up before they meet the Florida Panthers Friday in their 2009-10 season opener in Helsinki as part of the Compuware NHL Premiere Challenge.

Chicago coach Joel Quenneville told NHL.com's Shawn Roarke that the unique circumstances of this game -- playing against an unknown opponent on a larger ice surface less than 72 hours after travelling to another continent -- will not factor in his appraisal of his team.

"I think this team we're playing tonight is a pretty good hockey team," Quenneville said. "They are fast and they can make plays. We expect some time in our end and we expect some challenges."
Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
