I have been waiting for today since we started this little project with 99 days until the start of the 2009-10 season. I write today's post with a huge smile on my face as I bring to you my favorite Chicago Blackhawk and second favorite resident of Wisconsin. With 37 days left until my favorite season, I present to you, Adam Burish Days!
Adam 'I'm a Pretty Man' Burish was born on January 6, 1983 in Madison, Wisconsin.
He was drafted in the 9th round of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, 282nd OA by the Chicago Blackhawks.
Prior to his NHL career, Adam played four years at the University of Wisconsin. He served as captain for the 2005-06 national champion team, and assisted on both goals in Wisconsin's 2-1 victory over Boston College in the title game.
Adam made his NHL debut with the Blackhawks on October 14, 2006 at St. Louis and scored his his first NHL goal January 22,2008 at San Jose.
He netted his first Stanley Cup playoff goal and the Western Conference Quarterfinals series-clincher on April 27, 2009 against Calgary.
During the 2007-08 campaign, Adam became the first Blackhawks player since Bob Probert in 1998-99 to rack up more than 200 penalty minutes in a single season.
Someone needs to explain to me how this is possible.
Dear Puck Bunnies, Stay away.
I prefer the Red Sox, but I'll allow it...
Not much can be said about this. Oh. My.
