WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is getting a visit from his hometown hockey team.

Obama has invited the Chicago Blackhawks to the White House next Monday to celebrate their latest Stanley Cup victory.

While in Washington, the team will also visit with wounded military veterans and their families at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

The Blackhawks' defeat of the Boston Bruins in June gave them their second Stanley Cup championship in four seasons.
