BLOG: Perlini takes a breather

After sitting out against the Canadiens, Brendan Perlini feels ready to hear his name called again

by Chris Wescott / chicagoblackhawks.com

Brendan Perlini was a healthy scratch on Sunday and sat out the Blackhawks 3-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens. For the 22-year-old forward, it was a chance to reset.

"I try to improve no matter what the situation is," he said. "For me, I got some good work in, worked on some stuff and I'm ready to go when the coach calls my name again."

It would be no surprise if Perlini's world is still spinning after the Nov. 25 trade brought him to Chicago.

"I mean, I haven't really gone through it enough," he said. "I've only ever been traded once before and that was in junior when I was 16. This is a far superior circumstance. I'm just trying to improve with different things every day and learn off the guys, obviously some unbelievable players. Yeah, the team is going through a skid but you take a look around the room at Toews, Kane and all these guys who have won things and have done tremendous things in the game. Those are the guys you want to be around and learn off and improve from. For me, regardless of whatever the situation is I'm always going to try to improve and better myself."

As for what the Blackhawks want to see from him when he does make his return to the lineup, Head Coach Jeremy Colliton said, "I just want him to have a little more urgency without the puck. Skate, work, work away from the puck and I then I think he'll put himself in good situations."

"I like it," said Jeremy Colliton. "It's exactly what we needed. I felt the Vegas game we had some really good looks also. So we'll stick with it.

"We're just trying to find new ideas. It's something we talked about with the other four guys who are going to go out there too. 'What about this? Why don't we try this? We all feel like it can work."

FEATURE: Blackhawks fans put the cap on a multi-year long project

The Stacks couple put together an impressive Blackhawks logo made of more than 2,000 bottle caps

by Chris Wescott / chicagoblackhawks.com

The idea that sparked a multi-year project that would eventually become a work of art began as most grand ideas in college do -over some cold beers with a group of friends.

"This idea came to me while in graduate school when my roommates and I finally started drinking beers that didn't come in a can," said 28-year-old Adam Stack. "We seemed to constantly be recycling bottle caps and one day the idea just came to me. It was a house full of architecture students so the creative juices, figuratively - and probably literally - were flowing."

The result? A giant Chicago Blackhawks logo containing more than 2,000 bottle caps of varying colors - a tribute to a couple's unwavering support of their favorite hockey club.
