Blackhawks

New Blackhawks goalie Robin Lehner took to Twitter to show off his sick new Chicago helmet, complete with the hashtag #SameHere as an opportunity to talk candidly about mental health.

#SameHere is a global mental health movement and 501c3 nonprofit organization founded to decrease the stigma surrounding mental health in sports, with athletes and organizations using the hashtag to tell their stories of overcoming mental health struggles.

It’s exciting to see a player as influential as Lehner using his platform to speak out about his own mental health. Plus, his Hawks helmet is awesome, with black and white detailing of Blackhawks iconography that looks like it was drawn with quick, intense pencil strokes.

This may be Lehner first year with the Blackhawks, but he isn’t shy when it comes to showing off his Chicago pride, tweeting out a picture of his new red and black pads earlier this month. October seriously can’t come fast enough.
