Chicago Sun-Times

A well-deserved honor

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Tony Amonte was the Hawks' captain when I made my debut on the Blackhawks' beat. His career was on the downside then, in 2001, and he later moved on to Phoenix and then finished up at Calgary. While Amonte had 900 points in 1,174 games over 15 NHL seasons, it's best to remember him for his national team play. He was on two U.S. Olympic teams, including the silver medalists in 2002, and had 33 points wearing the U.S. uniform. No question Amonte's selection to the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame was no surprise. Congratulations, Tony.
