Hockey news in the month of Pride…

When the Chicago Gay Hockey Association invited the Blackhawks to participate in this year’s Pride Parade, a lot of folks wondered how the Hawks would respond.

Well, now we know.

Chicago defenseman Brent Sopel and his family will escort Lord Stanley’s Cup and represent the Chicago Blackhawks in Chicago’s Pride Parade!

They’ll join the Cubs, who were already set to have a float.

Hockey is for everyone - Happy Pride!
