Blackhawks To Honor NIU Victims

by Chicago Blackhawks Press Release / Chicago Blackhawks
The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that they will pay their respects to the six lives that were lost in the tragic shooting on the campus of nearby Northern Illinois University by wearing a Huskies decal on the back of their helmets for the game this Sunday, February 17 against the Colorado Avalanche. The decal will be a replica of the overlay of a black ribbon and Northern Illinois Huskies logo that appears on the university’s official website.

The team will also observe a moment of silence before the anthem for Sunday’s game to allow fans to pay their respects to six bright young lives that were senselessly taken from us.

The team will wear the decals for their road game against St. Louis on Tuesday, February 19 and again at home against Minnesota on Wednesday, February 20.
