President Obama picked up the phone and rang his hometown team of the Chicago Blackhawks Wednesday to personally congratulate them on their Stanley Cup Championship.
Coach Joel Quenneville, owner and chairman Rocky Wirtz, and captain Jonathan Toews were all on the phone when President Obama called, according to a statement from the White House press secretary.
“The President commended their leadership, and the entire team’s efforts on their third championship in six years,” the statement read. “The President added that he looks forward to welcoming the team back to the White House to celebrate their victory.”
This wasn’t the first time the POTUS showed his Hawks pride this season. He took to Twitter Tuesday to show the team some love on social media as well:
Congrats to my hometown @NHLBlackhawks on 3 titles in 6 years - we'll see you and The Cup at the White House!
