Patrick Kane is going to rush things with his surgically repaired left wrist. In fact, it sounds as if Kane doesn't think he'll be ready when Blackhawks training camp starts in mid-September.

Kane gave an update on his wrist, which he underwent surgery for on July 19 to repair a scaphoid fracture, in a radio interview with Fan 590 in Toronto on Tuesday.

The Blackhawks won't be the most televised team nationally during the 2011-12 season -- those honors go to teams in the Eastern Conference like the Boston Bruins and Washington Capitals -- but they will have their share of national and Canadian audiences to entertain.

The NHL and NBC released it's master schedule for the upcoming season. Here's a look at the Hawks' games:

Tough guy Dan Carcillo met the Chicago media for the first time as a Blackhawk Monday at the United Center, and one thing stood out: he'll stand up for his new teammates and his old teammates.

All the speculation can finally end. Forward Patrick Sharp, who was always considered a core player by the Blackhawks, signed a five-year extension with the team on Wednesday.

It will be a couple more years before Chris Chelios becomes eligible to join the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. But it didn't take long for the former Blackhawks and Red Wing to be inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame.

Chelios, former Hawks defenseman Gary Suter, St. Louis Blues star Keith Tkachuk, broadcaster Mike "Doc" Emrick and Philadelphia Flyers owner Ed Snider were all named to the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday.

With the Wolves now the American Hockey League partner of the Vancouver Canucks -- the hated rival of the Blackhawks -- every move they make garners a little more attention.

On Monday, the Wolves finally announced that former NHL coach Craig MacTavish will be their next head coach.
