An avid fan of the Chicago area sports teams, Matthew Brunstrum enjoys following the Chicago Blackhawks of the National Hockey League (NHL) in his free time.

Despite missing the playoffs for a second consecutive season, the Blackhawks have a reason for optimism moving into the 2019-20 season. For starters, the team finished with three more wins and eight more points than it had in the season prior. In addition, star players Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, and Alex DeBrincat registered career-best totals in points.

A recipient of the Conn Smythe Trophy and Frank J. Selke Trophy in 2010 and 2013, respectively, Toews finished the season with 81 points, improving upon his previous career-high of 76 points, which he set during the 2010-11 season. He also scored a career-high 35 goals after failing to score more than 28 in a single season since 2011-12. Kane, meanwhile, registered 110 points. His previous career-high was 106. A second-year player from Farmington Hills, Michigan, DeBrincat registered 41 goals and 35 assists for 76 points.

Holding a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, Matthew Brunstrum has served as a mergers and acquisitions advisor at Sun Acquisitions in Chicago, Illinois, since 2017. Outside of his work, Matthew Brunstrum is involved in the local community through work with organizations such as PAWS Chicago–a nonprofit dedicated to animal welfare throughout the Chicagoland area.

Adoption is a wonderful opportunity to provide a warm, nurturing home life to ownerless pets housed in animal shelters. That said, adoption is also a serious commitment and PAWS Chicago has a screening process in place to ensure that pet adopted through the agency are placed with responsible owners capable of caring for them. Firstly, those looking to adopt must be at least 21 years old and able to provide a government-issued photo identification card proving their age.

Generally, new owners are also responsible for getting their new pet spayed/neutered for population control purposes. This requirement can be waved in some cases, however, based on individual circumstances. New adopters are also required to spend at least an hour with an adoption counselor, introduce the pet to all family members/pets currently residing in the home, and provide confirmation that they can legally house the pet in their home (if they don’t own their own home).
