ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – “Wakey, wakey Backes.”

That’s the now-infamous jab heard from a Chicago Blackhawks player after Blues captain David Backes was struck with a booming hit by defenseman Brent Seabrook in Saturday’s game at the Scottrade Center.

And now, the taunt is splayed across a T-shirt for sale on trendingt-shirts.com.

From Y98.com: Blackhawks Hit Backes and Taunt Him Afterward

Many say the comment, caught in a YouTube video, sounds like Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith. Keith said today that he couldn’t quite recall whether or not he said, “Wakey, wakey,” to Backes after the hit.

Seabrook was suspended three games for the hit. Backes had to leave Saturday’s game, and KMOX Sports has confirmed that he will not be playing in tonight’s game.
