The Chicago Blackhawks added a big-time Finnish prospect to their organization in defenseman Henri Jokiharju on Friday night. The move came a day after the Chicago Bulls landed Lauri Markkanen, a Finnish basketball prospect, in the first round of the NBA Draft.
It sounds like Markkanen is excited just like the rest of us:

Congrats @henrijokiharju!! https://t.co/xGXV82Uivy
Where does this go from here?
Jokiharju and Markannen taking trips to the Field Museum together? Walks around Milennium Park? Maybe a Cubs game or two?
I’m just saying, if Chicago’s newest young talents want to start a bromance, nobody is gonna stop them.
