Battles over the best Christmas song are often waged during the holiday season, and Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp weighed in with his favorite tune this week.
Speaking to NBC Sports Chicago’s “In the Loop” at the Blackhawks’ season ticket holder party at the Museum of Science and Industry, Sharp went with a bit of an unconventional, albeit popular, tune:
“It’s called ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ by Mariah Carey,” Sharp said. “It’s not really a traditional one, but my roommate in college played that in college right around Christmas break and we’d get excited to go home for break.”
Fortunately for Sharp and the rest of the Christmas lovers in the NHL, the league takes a holiday break around Christmas at the end of December. This year the Blackhawks will get five days off before resuming their schedule on Dec. 28 against the Vancouver Canucks.
