Blackhawks begin Preseason Play in 95 Days!


chicago blackhawks preseason

Never in a million years did I think that introducing a hockey preseason schedule would be a post of interest. I mean who cares about the NHL preseason? But Hawks mania does a lot of strange things. Patrick Kane is still on his post-Cup celebration bender from last week, and yet here we are talking about ’10-’11 already. The 2010 Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks announced today the team’s 2010 preseason schedule. Yes, it’ll be here before you know it. The shortest offseason in history will end in September.

The preseason consists of seven games against National Hockey League opponents including one contest in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The Blackhawks will open their preseason slate with a matchup against the Tampa Bay Lightning at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg on Wednesday, September 22 at 7:00 P.M. Chicago then battles their Central Division rival, the Detroit Red Wings on Friday, September 24 at Joe Louis Arena, before hosting Detroit for the 2010 preseason opener at the United Center on Saturday, September 25. The Blackhawks travel to Pittsburgh to face off against the Penguins at the brand-new Consol Energy Center on Tuesday, September 28, and the St. Louis Blues at Scottrade Center on Thursday, September 30. Chicago rounds out the preseason schedule by hosting Pittsburgh on Friday, October 1, and St. Louis on Sunday, October 3 at the United Center.

The 2009-10 Blackhawks defeated the Philadelphia Flyers to secure the fourth Stanley Cup Championship in franchise history and first since 1961. The club established franchise records during the regular-season for points (112), wins (52), and road wins (23) en route to the organization’s first division title in 17 years.

Game times and ticket information for the 2010 preseason will be announced at a later date.
