This year, chicagoblackhawks.com polled prospects to find out their favorite hockey player to watch, the person they text the most and more, all in their own words.

Remember this?

#CaptainSelfie was born on July 18, 2014, when Jonathan Toews took a photo of himself—and a few thousand Blackhawks fans in attendance—at the opening ceremonies of the Blackhawks Convention. But he wasn't the only one: Blackawks Magazine asked the rest of the team to follow the captain's lead and show off their selfie skills.

The results were predictably mixed, as you can see below in our preview. All of the "selfie"-portaits will be published as part of the 2014-15 season's Blackhawks Magazine player profiles, so be sure to pick up a copy at any Blackhawks home game or at the Blackhawks Store on Michigan Avenue.

Brad Richards, the newest addition to the team, got a rousing welcome from Blackhawks fans at the Convention. As he told Team Historian Bob Verdi: "I could tell right away that these people are passionate about hockey. I came in a couple nights before the Convention, went to dinner, and already fans are recognizing me." So the smile on this selfie is no surprise:

It may be the dog days of summer, but the Blackhawks are feeling very chilly after several members of the team took the "Ice Bucket Challenge" to raise awareness for ALS. The challenge asks celebrities, athletes and social media influencers to film themselves being doused with icy water, post it to social media and ask their friends to do the same. Those who refuse are asked to donate money to help fight ALS.

Last Thursday, Alyssa Koeppler helped her 5-year-old neighbor Kyle prepare for his first event ahead of kindergarten – a Teddy Bear Picnic. His elementary school in Lake in the Hills offers new kindergarteners the opportunity to meet with their teacher, read a book and eat some cookies to ease into the new school year.

Alyssa, who watches her neighbor during the day, instructed Kyle to pick out a stuffed animal for the Teddy Bear Picnic.

“Kyle ran upstairs and without any hesitation at all,” Alyssa explained, “brought his [Patrick] Kane doll with him.”
