We have our 2 big winners...
*Denise D. from Lockport, IL whose all time favorite player is Eddie Olczyk! We love Eddie O. too, and listen to the Chicago native all the time. He currently serves as a television color commentator for NBC, Versus and Chicago Blackhawks games on Comcast SportsNet Chicago and WGN-TV. He played 1,031 NHL games and produced 342 goals and 452 assists for a total of 794 points between 1984 and 2000.
(Olczyk also has two children playing hockey: Eddie plays for the UMass Minutemen in Amherst, Massachusetts and Tom, who plays for theSioux City Musketeers. His younger brother Rick Olczyk is a former hockey player for Brown University and is currently an assistant general manager for the Edmonton Oilers.)
*Gloria B. from Chicago whose favorite current and all time favorite players are Patrick Kane & Joe Sakic. Our neighbors to the north at EA Sports will be happy with that choice!
In our give away, we had a wide variety of states represented, with entries from as far away as Massachusetts, New Jersey, North Carolina, and Wisconsin. Of course Chicago and all the burbs represented heavily. Thanks to all who entered.
Happy Thanksgiving to all. At ChiIL Mama we're thankful for our readers and for finally having an awesome hockey team that brought home The Stanley Cup for the first time in our lifetimes. We're also thankful for family and friends and for fun games like NHL Slapshot to keep 'em entertained!
