The recipient of a bachelor’s degree in theology from Hyles-Anderson College, Sergio Garcia has been a sales manager with Chicago Real Estate Leaders since 1995 and focuses on selling foreclosed residential and commercial real estate. Beyond his professional pursuits, Sergio Garcia is a passionate fan of Chicago’s professional sports teams, including the Blackhawks.

The Chicago Blackhawks have won three Stanley Cups since 2010, and goaltender Corey Crawford has played an instrumental role in the two most recent championships. The 33-year-old native of Montreal, Quebec, was having a career-best season in 2017-18 with a record of 16-9-2 to go along with a 2.27 goals against average and a .929 save percentage, but he could miss the remainder of the regular season due to what is being referred to as “vertigo-like symptoms.”

Crawford was originally placed on the injured reserve list on December 27 with an upper-body injury, but recent reports have suggested he’s dealing with the same vertigo issue with which he grappled during the 2015-16 season. Blackhawks senior advisor Scotty Bowman said he believed Crawford was suffering from post-concussion syndrome, while Mark Lazarus of the Chicago Sun-Times has since reported he could be sidelined until next season. Anton Forsberg and Jeff Glass have been splitting starts in Crawford’s absence.
