Watch the Patrick Sharp tribute video shown at Thursday’s Blackhawks game

Patrick Sharp returned to the United Center tonight for a game for the first time since becoming a cap casualty from Chicago’s championship run last season.

The team welcomed him – as well as fellow former Blackhawk Johnny Oduya – back with a pair of tribute videos shown during the first period.

Players from both teams watched Sharp’s video during a timeout and he received a standing ovation from the crowd.

Watch the complete Patrick Sharp tribute video:

The night has been spoiled for Blackhawks fans by Dallas’ Patrick Eaves, who recorded a hat trick in the first period.

Chicago trailed 4-0 after two periods before making things interesting with a pair of goals in the third.
