  1. Love the Photo…

    Did I read that right… any ticket refunds would include 2% interest!!!!!
    Shit!!! The NHLPA should have purchased every ticket possible… and the players could have lived off of the freakin interest for the year!!!!! lol

  2. So when does the season start? I love going to most of the games at the UC, but if they want to wait until December or later it’s fine with me. We save money and the players will get to the playoffs less tired and beat up than normal. That assumes of course that they don’t pull a NBA style cram extra games into a tighter schedule deal that ended up with lots of extra injuries due to shorter recovery time.

  3. Remember what happened to Hockey the last time they pulled this crap!!!
    It took a hell of a long time for this league and all of the teams to recover financially and fan wise. Lets hope that they do not make the same mistake twice!!

  4. Theyve made this mistake twice,twice
    But “dumb fans” like myself who can’t wait will be at the first game at the UC.Whenever that maybe.Is like to show up Oct 13 even if there ‘s no game

  5. Bensenville, Ill. – With the National Hockey League lockout in full effect, it’s time to look to the Chicago Steel to get your hockey fix this season. The Steel play their home games at The Edge Ice Arena in Bensenville and are adding a few new ticket options for Chicagoland hockey fans looking to enjoy the upcoming winter by watching the future of professional hockey at an affordable price.

    The Steel are not a high school hockey team, but an elite program that recruits and develops some of the world’s best 16-20 year old hockey players. As a member of the United States Hockey League, the nation’s only Tier I junior hockey league, the Steel have earned a reputation for producing NHL prospects. In 12 seasons of USHL play, Chicago has produced 24 NHL Draft picks, including two first round selections. This season, the Steel boast two 2012 NHL Entry Draft picks in Mackenzie MacEachern (67th overall to St. Louis) and Jaccob Slavin (120th overall to Carolina).

    As a result of the NHL strike, the Steel would like to offer a “Lockout Ticket Package”. For only $40, you can get four tickets, four hot dogs, four sodas, four pucks signed by MacEachern and Slavin, a locker room tour, and free parking.

    Blackhawk and Chicago Express season ticket holders from the 2011-12 season, can also purchase discounted Steel season tickets and flex plans simply by showing their 2011-12 season ticket invoice. For $150, you can cheer on the Steel at all 32 home games and for $60 you get 12 undated ticket vouchers and can select the games that work best for you.
    For more information on how you can watch the Steel play with heart and passion, please contact the Chicago Steel Ticket Office at 630-594-1161.

    The Steel will open up the 2012-13 USHL regular season at home on Friday, Sept. 28 against the Indiana Ice. Puck drop for the Indiana contest is set for 7:30 p.m. at the Edge Ice Arena.

  6. I’m disappointed in the recent lock-out and seems both sides are at fault. However, if I’m a Blackhawk’s player my response would be “I will play in Europe….. you can have the Circus” see ya in a year and the fans suffer!
