On select Mondays throughout the 2018-19 season, blackhawks.com will have answers to some fan-submitted questions. This week, Stanley Cup champion turned broadcaster Adam Burish answers questions on playing with and against his hockey heroes and he discusses his brilliant acting performance in the Blackhawks Convention commercial.

1. That commercial for BHC2019 is pure gold! Any chance we will see more brilliant acting from you and Sharpy? Or perhaps a live version of it at the convention?! - Linda from Illinois

Video: Tommy Hawkman's got something for you

Ha! Thanks, Linda. I'll pass that along to Sharp also. I'm wondering if you might be blind, but we'll take it!

We filmed that during the polar vortex, so we were freezing the whole time. Sharp kept laughing at me every time I had to "act" so it took way longer than it should have. The Banner Collective production team did such a great job of putting that together frame by frame, and making it easy for Sharp and I. Neither of us had ever seen the original commercial before!

MONDAY MAILBAG: Kane for the Hart?

Adam Burish answers fan submitted questions as part of blackhawks.com's Mailbag series

by Adam Burish / blackhawks.com

On select Mondays throughout the 2018-19 season, blackhawks.com will have answers to some fan-submitted questions. This week, Stanley Cup champion turned broadcaster Adam Burish fields several questions, including on dealing with confrontations in a locker room and whether or not Patrick Kane should be considered for the Hart Trophy.

1. The team spends a lot of time together, so how do y'all deal with confrontation towards certain aspects of the game such as losing a game? - Bethany from Texas

You're right, Bethany. You spend as much time with your teammates as you do with your family during the season so you create a really strong bond. That allows guys to be open and honest with each other and really trust each other. When things don't go well, guys talk about it. Guys get upset about things, they get into it with each other sometimes and that's all positive and part of being a great team.

MONDAY MAILBAG: Ask Kane

Patrick Kane answers fan questions submitted on blackhawks.com during the All-Star break

by Patrick Kane / blackhawks.com

On select Mondays throughout the 2018-19 season, blackhawks.com will have answers to some fan-submitted questions. This week, we caught up with Patrick Kane and let him answer your questions while in San Jose for the NHL All-Star Weekend.

1. If you could pick any other job what would it be? Also, if you had to pick to be a different athlete, what sport would it be in? - Logan from Lake Cowichan, BC

Well, I grew up and my dad was the owner of a car dealership. So I always thought that was kind of my fallback plan if I didn't make the NHL. I'd probably have to say car salesman or owner of the dealership.

As far as sports, I thought I was a pretty good basketball player growing up. Obviously, I was a little bit shorter than probably your average basketball player so that probably wouldn't have worked out for me. I always thought I was pretty good at it.

MONDAY MAILBAG: Kane goals and guitars

by Adam Burish / blackhawks.com

On select Mondays throughout the 2018-19 season, blackhawks.com will have answers to some fan-submitted questions. This week, former Blackhawks forward, 2010 Stanley Cup champion and Blackhawks TV contributor Adam Burish discusses his favorite Patrick Kane goal and his musical talents.

1. What is your favorite goal that Kane has scored? - Anna from Chicago

Good question, but that's tough to answer... so many great goals! I had a pretty sweet behind-the-back, no-look pass to him in 2010 to give him a tap-in goal, for his first ever 30-goal season. I don't want to take too much credit setting him up for so much success after that, but WOW, was that a nice pass! I put it on a tee for him to tap in. I'm sure looking back he'll remember that chance he had to play on a line with me and all those great passes I gave him as the springboard to becoming the best player in the league. HA!

Winning the Stanley Cup in Philly is the easy answer to that question, Blake. But is it OK if I pick the two weeks after that game? Because those two weeks partying with the Stanley Cup all around Chicago was something I'll never forget!
