The Chicago Blackhawks thought they'd make their newest blueline acquisition, Brandon Manning, a bit more comfortable around the UC by showing him the ropes. His walk to the stadium involved several near misses, where cars had to make quick swerves in an attempt to avoid Manning who was so excited to be a Blackhawk, that he kept running into traffic. A common trait with overexcited dogs. The organization then had an autograph signing for him held in the team store at the UC. Nobody showed up, except for those mannequins near the doors. And by showed up, I mean that they never left. Because their mannequins. And if you ever saw one walking around, then you should run like hell in the opposite direction. The team also showed him the offices at the United Center, surely because he'll one day be hired on in some role with the organization like every other former Hawk. He kept thinking the railings were fancy European style benches with super thin seating. He fell backwards and onto the lower level shortly after this image was taken, but Hawks brass didn't mind much. They didn't want to hop back on the elevator with him anyhow because he kept pressing every button when they were first in the elevator with him. You can hopefully (NOT) catch Brandon Manning tonight against the Wings at 7:30pm Central on NBCSCH+.
