On Wednesday the Blackhawks announced the organizations’ plans to celebrate the life of Hall of Famer Stan Mikita during the upcoming season.
The Hawks will host a pregame ceremony before the home opener on Sunday, Oct. 7 when the Toronto Maple Leafs visit the United Center. Chicago will also wear a patch on their home and away sweaters throughout the regular season.
