Chicago Blackhawks President & CEO John McDonough today released the following statement on Bryan Bickell. Bickell, currently with the Carolina Hurricanes, was today diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS).
"Our thoughts are with Bryan, his family and the Carolina Hurricanes during this challenging time. He has built so many lasting relationships in Chicago both inside and outside of the Blackhawks organization based on his play on the ice and character off of it.
