When we last left U.S. speedskater Brian Hansen, his quest of finding all 10 Chicago Blackhawks representing their countries in Sochi was three short.

After meeting and getting pictures with Marian Hossa, Niklas Hjalmarsson, Johnny Oduya, Michal Handzus, Michal Rozsival, Marcus Kruger and Patrick Sharp, Hansen was in search of Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith and Patrick Kane.

Soon after his mission began getting some buzz, he was able to find Toews and Keith, but his fellow American, Kane, was nowhere to be found. Hansen's roommate and fellow speedskater, Joey Mantia, tried to get the word out by depicting the American forward as Waldo.

With four days left in the Sochi Olympics, Hansen will fortunately head home knowing he completed his goal as on Thursday he finally ran into Kane:

Hansen can still win a medal this week in Friday's team pursuit event, but finding all 10 Blackhawks should certainly earn him something.
