HOBART | Recently, one fan that attends Joan Martin Elementary School is growing his beard out (fake of course). Posed as an extra credit challenge by one of the 5th grade teachers, this fan keeps adding on to his beard every day. Once the Blackhawks reached the playoffs, they think it is good luck to grow a "playoff beard."
Our fan, Zax's, favorite player is Patrick Kane. Kane is one of the younger players on the team. Kane is only in his twenties. Zax's second favorite player, Duncan Keith, lost half of his teeth due to being hit in the face with a puck.
The Blackhawks are currently the best team in their division and in the whole NHL. The Blackhawks will have to win a total of 16 games to bring the Stanley Cup back to Chicago. In my personal opinion, I think the Blackhawks will win.
