Patrick Kane and the Blackhawks will begin the tough task of defending their 2013 Cup title on Oct. 1, when they raise their championship banner before taking on the Washington Capitals.

With every team targeting the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Blackhawks will try to become the first NHL team to repeat since 1998, when Detroit accomplished that feat (coached by Scotty Bowman, current Blackhawks Senior Advisor to Hockey Operations).

Chicago became the first squad to capture both the Presidents' Trophy for the league's best regular-season record and the Stanley Cup since Detroit turned the trick in 2008. And by becoming the first team to win a second title since the hard salary cap went into effect and setting a new record by starting the season with a 24-game point streak, the players know their opponents will use every contest as a measuring stick against them.

Throughout the week, 2013 draft pick John Hayden will be blogging for chicagoblackhawks.com about his experiences during his first Blackhawks Prospect Camp.

I think this final game was the most competitive of all three scrimmages, especially since we were competing for that big trophy. It’s unfortunate that we got the loss, but I think our team worked hard all three days. We were joking that we got the two wins before this one, so I think we’re still ahead.

It was nice to be on the winning side of today’s Prospect Camp scrimmage, but these past two scrimmages have just been exhibition games. Tomorrow is for everything: the last scrimmage of the week, it’s going to be played more like an actual game, and it's our last chance to show what we can do. So we have to bring it all tomorrow again just to make sure we get the win.

We got to the rink about the same time as yesterday; one group got to skate, and one group, including me, worked out. After our third day, we’re all getting a better understanding of what being a pro is all about. We’re getting the same treatment that the Blackhawks do, from coaching to our equipment managers and trainers. It’s really motivating us, since we all want to make it to this level.

Today we started out at the rink at about 8 a.m. We got to work with [Strength and Conditioning Coach] Paul Goodman on some circuits – everything from squats to ladders. It was pretty tough. I wouldn’t say that the workouts were that intense, but it covered a lot of different exercises. I have a really good workout program back home, but it was really interesting to see what the Blackhawks do and what is important to them; it will help me in the future, as well.

I came into town yesterday. I was born here, and my family moved right away, but I come back to Chicago almost every year. I still have family here – my grandfather lives in the city, so I’m familiar with the area. Even so, it’s exciting to be back for something like this: my first NHL prospect camp.

We had a meeting last night where everyone, coaches and players, introduced themselves to each other. It was good to get a feel for the staff and all of the other players before hitting the ice with them today. The older guys, who have been to this camp for several years now, did a really good job of welcoming the younger guys who were just drafted. They made us feel comfortable right away.

The Blackhawks are Stanley Cup champions for the second time in four seasons, and now will grace the cover of Sports Illustrated for the third time in 2013.

The regional cover, out this week, features Dave Bolland's title-winning goal from the closing minute of the decisive Game 6. The Blackhawks made two covers previously this season: during their 24-game unbeaten streak to begin the year, and during the Western Conference Final against Los Angeles.
