A day after a very poorly received Chicago Blackhawks press conference, things went a lot better for Patrick Kane & Co. at training camp on Friday.

The crowd of about 4,000 people reacted warmly to Kane’s presence at Compton Ice Arena at Notre Dame, according to Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News.

“That’s a pretty cool reaction, especially given the circumstances,” Kane said . “You didn’t really know what to expect. I thought it was one of those things when you’re going on the ice you don’t know what’s going to happen. To hear that reaction from the crowd definitely gave me chills. It was an exciting moment.”

On Thursday, Kane didn’t really answer many questions while Chicago denied claims that they’ve handled the situation in a “tone-deaf” way.
