Blackhawks to appear on Whitney
The Chicago Blackhawks will be making an appearance on the NBC sitcom Whitney.
NBC's NHL broadcasts don't get underway until the Friday of Thanksgiving weekend, but the League is already making its way on to the network in a manner that would make famed fictional Blackhawks fan Clark Griswold proud.

In an upcoming episode of the NBC sitcom Whitney, Chris D'Elia and Dan O'Brien's characters make their on-ice allegiance known as they commiserate over a missed shot by Troy Brouwer -- still a Blackhawk for the purposes of the episode, though he now plays for the Capitals. Displaying the superstition that fandom is heir to, the pair then debate over whose apartment is likely to help the team more and the finer points of recycling.

Whitney airs Thursday nights at 9:30 ET on NBC.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.

— Florida Panthers director of player development Brian Skrudland on defenseman Aaron Ekblad's performance at development camp
