The Chicago Blackhawks have released official team valentines sweet enough to melt even the iciest of cold hearts this lovely weekend.
Do you want to let someone know he or she is your top pick? Try this Coach Quenneville card:
Think your valentine is awesome? Brad Richards would be happy to let that person know:
Violets are blue. OK, they’re violet; but whatever, let Michal Rozsival send a little flirt for you:
Stop in the name of love… or David Rundblad:
Have a “Haappy” Valentine’s Day with the help of Brandon Saad:
Brent Seabrook will let the object of your affection know his or her heart is safe:
Who better to give a compliment than Patrick Sharp? (Also, where does one find this shirt? It would go really well with the the card…)
Even Andrew Shaw has a softer side for this holiday:
If you don’t want to be coy, let Bryan Bickell deliver:
This sweet message from Johnny Oduya will have your valentine saying, “Yes, I do.”
There’s nothing like a note from Norris Trophy-winner Duncan Keith to win hearts:

Niklas Hjalmarsson will put himself on the line for your valentine just like he does for the team:
Corey Crawford has a big net-front presence. Let him get your valentine’s attention.
Captain Jonathan Toews led his team to two Stanley Cup victories. He’s serious about love, too:
These can be downloaded for signing, sealing, and delivering at the Blackhawks’ Web site. Last year’s can be found here.
If these happen to work for you, you’ll be happy to know the Blackhawks have Valentine’s Day off. They beat the New Jersey Devils Friday night, 3-1, and will play the Pittsburgh Penguins at 12:30 a.m. Sunday, in a game that can be seen on NBC.
P.S. Less savory valentines for other players and other teams can be found on the Web, but you’ll have to search for those yourselves.
