Around the UC:

-The Hawks Convention is FRIDAY! For those of you who won't be able to make it, CSN has you covered. They will have live coverage of the event. It all starts with the Opening Ceremony this Friday at 5:00 pm. More details here. Don't forget to check back here too, I will post about my whole experience. Plus photos!

-The Hurricanes have released the logo for the 2011 All-Star game. To promote the game and the logo, they will have a 5,000 square-foot window banner. Who's on the banner? Crosby? Is that even a question. Ovechkin? Yes, seeing Ovie in that size will haunt our dreams forever. A Staal brother? Of course, they're pretty. The final player? No, not Toews but Kane: (source)

-You can check out the baby Blackhawks (Beach, Lalonde) in the Toronto Maple Leafs Rookie Tournament on September 11 at the John Labatt Centre. (source)

-Recently, Fraser talked to reporters at the Oilers' hockey camp. It was his first time meeting with the media as an Oiler: “That’s what got me to the NHL and I’m not going to change the way I play at all. I work hard every night, try to bring a little character, a little grit and a little leadership all at the same time. I’m not the most skilled guy, but I get by with a little hard work.” Read more: Fraser see similarities between Oilers, Blackhawks

-If you wanna talk about Success, lets talk about John McDonough: NewYorkTimes: From Cubs to Hawks to Champion: "McDonough’s spacious United Center office affords him a nice view of the Chicago skyline. The city is in his soul, so he’s in a good place. The closest he has come to a “Holy, um, Cow” moment was on his day with the cup. He took it home to his Edison Park neighborhood for a parade, and the joy on the faces of the people he’d grown up with validated his decision to leave the Cubs for the Blackhawks in November 2007." (Can't blame him for leaving the Cubs. Who wouldn't?)
