The Blackhawks have been the only Chicago team to win championships during Obama's presidency. They also won in 2011.

Obama praised the team not only for their skills on the ice but for their contributions to the community. Blackhawk players and staff visited troops and their families at Walter Reed Army Medical Center earlier in the day.
