CHICAGO — The Chicago Blackhawks are headed to the White House — again.

The defending Stanley Cup champions will be honored by President Barack Obama Monday, according to the White House.

"Congrats, @NHLBlackhawks. Thanks for bringing the Stanley Cup back to Chicago," the president tweeted on June 25, the day after the team clinched the franchise's fifth Stanley Cup and second in four years.

The team on Monday will also pay a visit to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center during their visit, before heading to Winnipeg for a game Wednesday.

The Hawks were last invited to the president's abode in March 2011, after winning the Cup the previous year.

The ceremony is slated for 1 p.m. Monday.
