CHICAGO (AP) -The Chicago Blackhawks will wear NIU Huskies decals on their helmets during Sunday's home game to honor those killed in the shooting at Northern Illinois University.

The Blackhawks play the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday. The team announced that it also plans to wear the decals at St. Louis on Tuesday night and at home against Minnesota on Wednesday night.

The decal replicates the overlay of a black ribbon and Huskies logo that currently appears on NIU's official Web site.

The team will also observe a moment of silence before the national anthem at Sunday's game.

A 27-year-old graduate student killed five people in a NIU lecture hall Thursday before killing himself.
