How have the Blackhawks been spending their offseason? chicagoblackhawks.com recently sat down with your favorite players to see how their summer has gone so far and discuss some of their aspirations for the 2012-23 NHL campaign.
What did you do this summer? Did you stay home or go on vacation?
The only place I’ve been is Humboldt, Saskatchewan, where my brother was playing in the CHL for the RBC Cup. I bought two jet skis this year, so I’ve been on those and on the lake.
Did you keep in touch with or hang out with any teammates?
I’ve kept in touch with Shawzy and other guys who I hang out with during the season.
Have you hit the ice yet? Are you trying to work on any particular skills or parts of your game?
I’m just working on everything; I do that every summer. Little things to touch up on what the coaches tell me, but other than that, just shooting pucks and working with my skating coach.
What’s your personal goal for next season?
The big picture is to win the Stanley Cup.
