The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that weekend passes for the third annual Blackhawks Convention have sold out. The first of its kind in the National Hockey League, the Blackhawks Convention will take place at the Hilton Chicago (720 S. Michigan Ave.) on Friday, July 30; Saturday, July 31 and Sunday, August 1, 2010.
The convention, which has now sold out in each of its first three years, will feature both current Blackhawks players and alumni throughout the weekend and will include numerous autograph and photo sessions; Q&A panels; exhibits and interactive games and much more. Blackhawks Hall-of-Famers and Team Ambassadors Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita, Tony Esposito and Denis Savard, General Manager Stan Bowman, Head Coach Joel Quenneville and players Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith and Patrick Kane are all scheduled to appear.
Blackhawks and national television analyst Eddie Olczyk will again serve as the master of ceremonies at the convention. Last year, over 10,000 fans took part in the weekend’s activities, which included live broadcasts on Chicago’s WGN Radio 720 and Comcast SportsNet, along with many more exclusive events.
