Report: Blackhawks Building New Practice Home?

Crain’s is reporting Friday morning that the Blackhawks might follow the Bulls’ lead – and build a new practice facility.

According to the report, Rocky Wirtz is considering a 70,000 square foot, $30 million practice complex just northeast of the United Center. The Blackhawks currently practice at Johnny’s IceHouse West.

Also of note in the report, the United Center paid $20 million in amusement and parking taxes last year, and Wirtz indicated that each playoff game makes the city another $300,000.
