Blackhawks Making News

from Rick Westhead of the Toronto Star,

On a steely cold December morning, Blackhawks defenceman Brent Seabrook stumbled out of bed at 4:45 and quickly made his way to a TV station in downtown Chicago for a peculiar assignment: sharing a recipe for penne and chicken with pink vodka sauce – and winning new hockey converts.

The 22-year-old Seabrook has since appeared on the ABC affiliate station for a segment about New Year’s Eve fashions, while several of his teammates in recent weeks have been guests of a rival channel to tout holiday gift ideas.

“It’s pretty early, but that’s morning TV,” says Seabrook, in his third season with the Blackhawks. “I got a chance to sleep later in the day. Hey, it’s just nice being recognized around the city these days.”

That the networks would covet appearances by Seabrook and other Blackhawks players speaks to the team’s startling reversal of fortunes. Suddenly in Chicago, where, in recent years, news about the Blackhawks was relegated to the last page of the sports section when it was covered at all, the Blackhawks are surging both on and off the ice.
