It is not uncommon for professional teams to hold training camps on college campuses. The 2013 Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks opened up camp today in South Bend at the University of Notre Dame. After many conditioning tests and media talks, the Blackhawks had the chance to visit the school’s facilities and attend a Notre Dame football practice. Here are some photos – it looks like they had a great time.
