Chicago leads the league in one-goal victories this season with 13.
The Blackhawks own a mark of 13-5-5 in one-goal games going into the holiday break after losses to Ottawa and Colorado last week. Chicago has 35 goals and 21 against in the third period, which has certainly helped. The 21 goals against is the fewest of any team in the third this season. Mon, Dec 26, 2016 12:26:00 PM

The Chicago Blackhawks will have $3.07 million of salary cap overages against them in 2016-17.

What that means is that the Blackhawks exceeded the 2015-16 cap by that amount due to performance bonuses being triggered. When that happens, the excess cap hit is carried over to the following season, which essentially puts Chicago behind the curve as far as usable cap space is concerned. That might be part of the reason why they felt clearing Bryan Bickell's $4 million cap hit was so important that they were willing to package him with top prospect Teuvo Teravainen in a trade with Carolina.

With the late edition of Christian Ehrhoff, the Blackhawks lead all NHL teams with 13 payers set to compete at in the World Cup of Hockey.

Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, Corey Crawford, Patrick Kane, Marian Hossa, Marcus Kruger, Tevo Teravainen, Artemi Panarin, Artem Anisimov, Niklas Hjalmarsson, Michal Kempny, Ville Pokka and Ehrhoff will all take part in the tournament. The Hawks should be strong again in 2016-17.

Chicago will probably be looking for a defenseman in the off-season.

Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook and Niklas Hjalmarsson are the stalwarts, while Trevor van Riemsdyk emerged as a trustworthy player in 2015-16. The Blackhawks need more depth at the position and Teuvo Teravainen has been mentioned as a possible trade chip to land a blueliner.

If you are a betting person we would put a buck or two down on the Blackhawks to win Game 6 Saturday night against St. Louis.

Why, you may ask? Well, under coach Joel Quenneville, the Hawks are an amazing 14-1 in Game 6's. That's enough evidence for us to support a Blackhawk win, especially when the game is in Chicago.

Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville reached 800 career wins when the Blackhawks defeated the Boston Bruins 6-4 on Sunday.

Bowman currently acts as Senior Advisor of Hockey Operations for the Chicago Blackhawks. Quenneville has won three Stanley Cups in his coaching career, all with the Blackhawks. Congratulations on the remarkable achievement coach Quenneville!

Joel Quenneville admits that Stadium Series games are fun, but being focused on the two points is critical.

"It’s an important game for both teams," coach Joel Quenneville said. "They’re coming off a great trip. We had an interesting week ourselves: big win in New York, trip to the White House and being on this stage is a privilege. But at the end of the day you have to be playing for keeps. You want to have fun in this setting, and you have more fun by playing the right way."

The Chicago Blackhawks have been selected as the hosts of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

This will mark the first time that Chicago has hosted the event. "Anytime an NHL event is held in an Original Six city it adds to it the historical element of the NHL and with Chicago hosting the 2017 Draft, their storied history at the Chicago Stadium and their success at the United Center will bring home to all NHL fans and future players the rich traditions that come with playing in the National Hockey League," said Director of NHL Central Scouting Dan Marr. Buffalo is the host city for the 2016 draft.

Chicago coach Joel Quenneville exited his post-game press conference Tuesday night after one question.

He was still steamed over a disallowed goal in a 2-0 loss to San Jose. Goaltender interference was ruled on Dennis Rasmussen after a coach's challenge, so a goal by Brandon Mashinter was taken off the board. The Blackhawks have had two goals called back in three games.

Chicago Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman has received a three-year extension.

Bowman extended head coach Joel Quenneville's contract for three years just two weeks ago. "I am proud of how much Stan and his staff have accomplished, and have great confidence in his leadership as our organization continues to strive for consistent excellence," said team president John McDonough in a release. "Under Stan's guidance, our hockey operations department is strong across all levels, including scouting, player evaluation and development, and salary-cap management. He has created a sound structure that Blackhawks fans can be excited about for many years to come."

Joel Quenneville became the second winningest coach in NHL history on Thursday night, passing Al Arbour with his 783rd regular season win by virtue of a 2-1 win for the Blackhawks in Montreal on Thursday night.

Coach Q just needs 461 quick wins to tie Scotty Bowman for the most all-time coaching victories. The 57-year-old's first head coaching gig was with the St. Louis Blues in 1996, and he has missed the playoffs just once in nearly 20 years behind the bench.

Chicago has inked head coach Joel Quenneville to a three-year contract extension.

The Blackhawks host Nashville on Tuesday night and Quenneville can tie Al Arbour for second all-time in NHL coaching wins with a victory. Coach Q has amassed 781 coaching wins in his career. He would've entered the final year of his current deal next season and was more than deserving of a re-up.

The Chicago Blackhawks are about to enter a hectic stretch of their schedule.

Chicago will play in 17 games, including three sets of back-to-back contests, over 31 contests, starting with Sunday's contest against Carolina. Given that there's already an 11-point gap between the Blackhawks and Central Division-leading Dallas Stars, this is a critical stretch for Chicago if it wants to stay in the race for the division's top seed. The good news is that Chicago has enjoyed success in the past during similarly compact stretches, so it will be a challenge for the Blackhawks, it won't necessarily be detrimental.

Blackhawks' head coach Joel Quenneville believes that Brent Seabrook is an important part of the team's leadership group on and off the ice.

Seabrook signed a new contract extension on Saturday and he was named an assistant captain earlier this month. "That’s the way he carries himself." Quenneville said. "He’s been here for a lot of years and he’s been a big part of the success that we’ve had. When we talked to the captains, Seabs was always part of that, as well. So, he [already] was one of them." Quenneville has the luxury of relying on one of the best one-two punches on defense in the NHL with Seabrook and Duncan Keith.
