Following a year of faux moments from virtual cheering videos during the national anthem to Patrick Kane's puck flip to Tommy Hawk in the absence of our youngest fans, the Blackhawks are thrilled to be bringing back #FOMOments inside the arena with several gameday celebrations and an exciting promotional schedule.
The Blackhawks will kick off the fanfare around the season's start with the home opener on Tuesday, October 19 vs. the New York Islanders followed by the team's 1Kane recognition on Thursday, Oct. 21 vs. Vancouver. Officially skating in his 1,000th game during the pandemic (March 9, 2021), Kane then noted his desire to wait to share the special moment with an arena full of the best fans in sports, and the team will present his silver stick prior to that second home game of the season.
Additionally, Blackhawks Legacy Nights will honor Chicago's hockey heroes who recently hung up their skates and are celebrated by Blackhawks fans far and wide for their accomplishments both on and off the ice over the last decade. Former players slated to make their return to the United Center as part of this series include Andrew Shaw on Jan. 13 vs. Montreal, Brent Seabrook on Jan. 31 vs. Vancouver, and Niklas Hjalmarsson on March 3 vs. Edmonton.
The 21-22 season's celebrations would not be complete without a recognition of Hall of Fame play-by-play broadcaster Pat Foley, who will be calling his 39th and final season of Blackhawks hockey. The Blackhawks will highlight his incredible broadcasting career on April 14 as the team takes on San Jose.
Other highlights include:
- Game nights full of festivities and fun including Oktoberfest (Oct. 24 vs. Detroit), Día de los Muertos (Oct. 27 vs. Toronto) and the annual St. Patrick's Day game on March 8 vs. Anaheim, just before the citywide celebration;
- A stretch of holiday cheer in the United Center Atrium as the team is "Home for the Holidays" on Dec. 17 vs. Nashville, Dec. 21 vs. Florida and Dec. 23 vs. Dallas;
- Kids-focused activations during the family-friendly 2 p.m. matinee game on Sunday, Feb. 27 vs. St. Louis;
- And other fan-favorite games that celebrate the stories of our incredible local community including Native American Heritage Night (Nov. 7 vs. Nashville), Military Appreciation Night (Nov. 12 vs. Arizona), Hockey Fights Cancer (Nov. 28 vs. San Jose), Chicago Blackhawks Foundation Night (March 20 vs. Winnipeg), Pride Night (April 12 vs. Los Angeles) and many more.
Multiple promotional nights will feature special pregame events in the United Center Atrium and/or gate giveaways (details TBA). Additionally, fans can take advantage of several special interest ticket offers geared toward celebrating specific industries, heritages, alumni groups, youth organizations and more. More promotions and offers are expected to be added throughout the season, and fans can visit Blackhawks.com/SingleGames for the latest updates and other ticketing resources.
Last week, the United Center announced that all event attendees aged 12 and over, including fans at Chicago Blackhawks games, will be required to present either proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test to gain access to the arena. This decision is representative of the arena's proactive approach and continued commitment to providing the best environment for a safe return for all fans and employees. As final National Hockey League health and safety guidelines have yet to be announced, these protocols and certain experiences are still subject to potential league requirements. The Chicago Blackhawks will communicate additional details, if needed, as the season approaches at Blackhawks.com/HealthandSafety.
