Three Chicago Blackhawks Teammates Welcome Babies During the Finals
Three members of the Stanley Cup-winning team welcomed children during the June playoffs
Three seems to be a lucky number for the Chicago Blackhawks.
The NHL team took their third Stanley Cup Championship in just six years on June 15, defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning for the 2015 Cup.
Another three? Tiny, little teammates added to the team’s roster.
Players Kris Versteeg, Brent Seabrook and Antoine Vermette all welcomed babies during the Championship run.
Versteeg, who plays forward for the Blackhawks, welcomed his first child with wife Brittany on June 2 — just one day before Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final. Jaxson James weighed in at 7 lbs., 9 oz.

Defenseman Seabrook’s wife Dayna gave birth to Kenzie Belle on Friday, June 19, four days after the Blackhawk’s big win. Kenzie, who has a big brother named Carter, weighed 8 lbs., 3 oz.
Vermette and wife Karen‘s daughter Leona is now a big sister to Emilia, born Saturday, June 20. The sweet baby girl weighed in at 6 lbs, 12 oz.
