CHICAGO (AP) - Bryan Bickell is looking forward to Friday's parade and rally for the Chicago Blackhawks' second Stanley Cup title in four seasons.
The big forward also hopes to be a part of more celebrations in the city in the coming years.
Bickell is eligible for unrestricted free agency and could cash in after coming up with a big postseason despite playing the last series against Boston with a sprained right knee that raised questions about if he would be able to play at all against the Bruins.
But the 27-year-old Bickell, drafted by Chicago in 2004, wants to remain with the Blackhawks and is open to giving the team a discount in order to stay. He says his agent has talked to general manager Stan Bowman about a new contract.
