Several NHL players, including Chicago Blackhawks Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp, are planning to participate in "Champs for Charity," a hockey game on Friday, Oct. 26 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill.
The Chicago Blackhawks are having a difficult time not bringing their work home with them. Mired in a nine-game losing streak, and falling fast in the Western Conference standings, it's something they can't escape.
Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews will return to the lineup against the Canucks when the teams resume play after the All-Star break on Tuesday while forward Patrick Sharp is questionable for the contest.
Patrick Sharp was passed over for the NHL All-Star Game on Thursday, but the Chicago Blackhawks center would have made the team if he wasn't sidelined with a hand injury, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
