This offseason, several Blackhawks have shared their days of vacation with fans via Twitter. While Twitter pros like Brandon Bollig document their daily activities, ranging from Olympic commentary to restaurant reviews, Ben Smith (a fresh face on the Twitter scene) gets his feed rolling with some sporadic photo updates and brief messages to friends.

With so much fishing, sunning, golfing, and relaxing being documented by our Blackhawk tweeters this summer, we bring you the Friday Five: Twitpics Edition.

On July 31, 2008, the Blackhawks named NHL Hall of Famer and all-time winningest coach, Scotty Bowman, as Senior Advisor to Hockey Operations. Scotty's teams won 1,226 regular-season games and 223 playoff matches, and he was involved with 12 Stanley Cup championship teams. He is the only person to ever lead three different teams to Stanley Cup glory.

Throughout this week's Prospect Camp, Chicago-area native and 2012 Blackhawks draft pick Vincent Hinostroza will share his thoughts about his experiences in camp for chicagoblackhawks.com.

Well, the last day of Prospect Camp has come and gone.

On the ice, it was another good win for our team, and I was able to help in the victory with a goal and an assist.

On my goal, Joe Gleason was flying up the ice. I got to the open area and he fed me through the defenseman. I just had to tap it into the open net. Then on my assist, Denis Hollenstein gave me the drop pass, he got open, and he yelled for it back and buried it. I was pretty fortunate there – he saw the play the whole way.

It was another tough battle, and another good win for the team during Prospect Camp scrimmage today.

It’s so much fun to play out there with these guys. Everyone comes and battles – it’s really fun.  When the play gets this competitive, it’s natural that there will be fights or shoving between the teams, and I was part of it today. We’ll all be friends after the game’s over, but on the ice, no one on the other team is a friend. It’s a battle – just the heat of the moment kind of thing.

I took a turn in the shootout, and it was cool to get the call from our coaches. I made a move there, but I hit some bad ice. I probably should have just shot it, and tried to get it past the goalie’s glove. It’s great that we still won the game.

For the rest of the day, I think we might walk down to the beach, and down Michigan Avenue. It’s our last night together as a group in Chicago, so we want to just enjoy the city a little bit before we head out tomorrow.

Whatever we do, it won’t be quite as big as yesterday, when we had our social at Trump Tower. We were able to be outside, and take in the view of Chicago. Patrick Kane wound up stopping by, and it was cool to meet him. He was really interested in where we came from and how we were liking the camp; he was a really nice guy.

Well, we only have one more day left of camp: it’s one more chance for us to show off what we can do. I think the fans that come can expect a really competitive, fast-paced game tomorrow.
