Around the UC:

See more photos from the Blackhawks holiday party here.

-Congrats to the Sharp family on their newborn baby girl!
Sharp: "It’s crazy. You can prepare and talk about it as much as you want and my brother (Chris) has two daughters and I talked to (Marian) Hossa a lot this year. You can think you're ready for it and when it happens it’s a whole different situation."

-Sharp: "When I saw the baby for the first time, it was an unbelievable feeling. You really can't describe it until you go through it yourself."

-Seabrook: "I love this organization and I'd love to be here for my whole career." Sunday will be Seabrook's 500th game. It's also another chance for Keith and Seabrook to talk about each other to the media. Keith: "We've kind of grown up together. I've definitely seen Brent mature as a person off the ice as well as on the ice. He has gotten better every year. "It has been awesome to be his teammate for the last seven years."

Blackhawks' fantastic four

-Bowman: "I've been calling a lot of the GM's over the last few weeks to try and find out what they're doing. We've contacted all the teams and we're looking to get better. If we see an opportunity to get either a forward or a defenseman I think we'd have to look at that."

-Emery: “I’m happy to get wins but at the same time I think that you can always get better. As soon as you think you’re doing well, get too comfortable something might happen. You just have to be ready.”
Emery continues to ride confidence streak

-Toews on Hossa: “There’s nothing he can’t do out there. I’ve said that many times about Hoss; he’s one of those complete packages and one of those rare players you don’t see too often. But at the same time he’s willing to do whatever he has to do to help the team win. He doesn’t have that ego where there’s things he’s too good to do out there. He just goes out there and gets the job done.”
Is Hossa a Selke Trophy candidate? Why not?

#Blackhawks take different approaches to Twitter

-Carcillo: "It's different sitting in the room with microphones. You've got to kind of pretend you're talking to people. It's different, but it's also fun, interesting and new. It's something I've been interested in for the longest time. ... I'm pretty proud of it."

-Toews on if he wants to start a family someday: “Yeah, I’m human."

The Blackhawks as Muppets

-Sharp: “Seabs saw a bunch of people walking around with these belts, and he thought it’d be a good idea to pass it around to the MVPs. He went and offered a guy some money for it, bought it and brought it to the rink the next day.”
