Cutler brings family of slain Bears fan to game

Tragedy struck the Pettry family of Lake Villa, Ill., 15 days ago when William "Christopher" Pettry was stabbed at a bar in Jacksonville, Fla.

Pettry, a huge Bears fan who was in town for Chicago's game on Oct. 7, was pronounced dead after being stabbed at Fionn MacCool's, an Irish restaurant and bar in the Jacksonville Landind area.

He never made it to the Bears-Jaguars game that Sunday with his friends.

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler brought the Pettry family to Monday night's game vs. the Detroit Lions and before kickoff he took a few moments to talk with Pettry's family on the field.

Niklas Hjalmarsson says goodbye to Chicago in emotional Instagram post

Niklas Hjalmarsson has called Chicago home ever since he was drafted by the Blackhawks in 2005. But now it's time for a new chapter.

After being traded to the Arizona Coyotes in June, the former Blackhawks defenseman officially said goodbye to the city he spent a decade in and helped bring three Stanley Cups to with an emotional Instagram post that perfectly sums up his time here:

One marriage. Two kids. Three rings. 

Hjalmarsson will forever hold a special place in the hearts of Blackhawks fans.
