The Chicago Blackhawks will honor former forward Adam Burish with "One More Shift" on Tuesday, Jan. 7, prior to the game against the Calgary Flames at 7:30 p.m. at the United Center.

In its fourth season, the "One More Shift" campaign allows fans to recognize former players one more time as they skate on the ice. Burish will join the team during the national anthem after the starting lineup has been announced on Tuesday, and in-arena elements will also feature Burish and the highlights of his career.

As previously announced, the Blackhawks are commemorating the 10th anniversary of the 2010 Stanley Cup Championship, one of the most unforgettable seasons in franchise history, through a series of 2010 Anniversary Night games, special content, events and appearances throughout the year.

Each 2010 Anniversary Night features a signature display of historical items and interactive photo opportunities in the United Center Atrium during pregame. For Tuesday night's game, Atrium doors will open at 4 p.m. with gates to the arena to follow at 6 p.m. Burish will participate in a live Q&A session moderated by NBC Sports Chicago's Pat Boyle in the Atrium at approximately 6:15 p.m.

The first 10,000 fans to enter the United Center on Tuesday will also receive a Jonathan Toews bobblehead, presented by Chicagoland & NW Indiana Chevy Dealers.

The 10th anniversary campaign will culminate in an on-ice celebration at the final 2010 Anniversary Night game on March 19, bringing together members of the team that returned the Stanley Cup to Chicago after 49 years. Fans will have the opportunity to collect the final item of the 2010 Championship-inspired giveaway series - a 2010 Replica Ring - at that game vs. Minnesota at 7:30 p.m. (first 10,000 fans; presented by NBC Sports Chicago).

Tuesday's game against Calgary can be seen on NBC Sports Chicago, the exclusive local television home for Blackhawks hockey, as well as streamed live online at NBCSportsChicago.com and the "MyTeams by NBC Sports" app. It can also be heard on WGN Radio and Univision's TUDN Deportes Radio Chicago (Spanish).
