Our daily look at Blackhawks news and the happenings around the world of hockey.

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

Can the Blackhawks play the Hurricanes more often? Chicago took care of business and blew the doors off an opponent for the first time in while on Monday night. It was only one game, against a craptastic team, but given Stan Bowman's recent work, things are looking up again on West Madison Street. To the news:

**Trades happened yesterday. Read about them all here. (SBN)

**The Blackhawks' front office has learned from last year's mistake. (Chicago Sun-Times)

**Well this is cute. Seriously, it is. Very much so. (NHL)

**Mark Giordano's season is over. (Puck Daddy)

**Cam Atkinson signed an extension with the Blue Jackets. So much for all of those trade rumors. (NHL)

**Vince "better Chicago celebrity than Jim Belushi" Vaughn donned a Blackhawks sweater while taking the polar plunge over the weekend. (Eye on Hockey)

**Thanks for the memories, Ben Smith. Specifically this one. (Our hearts)
