Washington, D.C — Today, the White House welcomed the 2015 Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks for a special ceremony. U.S. Representative Peter J. Roskam released the following statement:

“It’s great to see our Blackhawks at the White House today for the third time in six years.

“I’m so proud of our All-Stars and our hometown hero Scott Darling, who just got engaged during the All-Star break. Lemont is barely outside my district so I’m trying to find a way to annex his childhood home.

“It was great to see some of our new guys out there. Bread Man said some really touching words, or at least that’s what Anisimov tells me.

“Word is that Hjalmarsson talked to the Secret Service about blocking shots for the president and I heard Shaw even tried to head-butt his way into the Oval Office, though it was disallowed.

“Even though we barely had Timonen, it’s hard not to smile for a guy who won his first Stanley Cup in the final game of a 20-year career.

“Sadly Car Bomb couldn’t make it, I’m glad to see he’s continuing his amazing work off the ice with the Chapter 5 Foundation.

“All in all it was a great event, but for some reason nobody could find any #RoarBacon at the ceremony. I guess you need to win a Stanley Cup before they let you choose the menu. Isn’t that right, Congressman Bost?"
