In conjunction with official television broadcasting partners Comcast SportsNet and WGN-TV Channel 9, the Chicago Blackhawks announced today their 2009-10 regular-season television schedule, which covers 74 games, home and away. Veteran announcers Pat Foley and Eddie Olczyk will provide the coverage on each broadcast, which can be seen in HD. Click here for the full broadcast schedule.

The 2009-10 regular season marks the second time in team history all Blackhawks games, home and away, will be televised, which includes a National Hockey League high nine times on VERSUS. Chicago’s sixth consecutive year on Comcast SportsNet features 54 contests, beginning when the squad opens the regular-season against the Florida Panthers as part of NHL Premiere 2009 in Helsinki, Finland on Friday, October 2 at 11:30 A.M. (CT). That contest will also appear nationally on VERSUS.

Comcast SportsNet will also carry the Blackhawks’ North American season opener at Joe Louis Arena against the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday, October 8 at 6:30 P.M. (CT) and the club’s home opener at the United Center against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday, October 10 at 7:30 P.M. (CT). “Blackhawks Pre-Game Live” will air prior to the majority of every game on Comcast SportsNet with “Blackhawks Post Game Live” immediately following each contest.

The Blackhawks second consecutive season on WGN-TV Channel 9 launches on Saturday, October 17 when the team battles the Dallas Stars at the United Center. Chicago makes 20 appearances on the station, which was also its home from 1961 to 1975.

In addition, Chicago will have the chance to make up to four more appearances on NBC’s “Game of the Week” in the second half of the season, once the league and network announce those contests as part of their flex scheduling agreement.

Every game in 2009-10 can be heard on the radio home of the Blackhawks, News/Talk 720 WGN Radio, with John Wiedeman and Troy Murray calling the action.

Comcast SportsNet officially launches its coverage when it carries the Blackhawks’ preseason opener at the United Center against the Washington Capitals on Saturday, September 19 at 7:30 P.M. Earlier that day, the Blackhawks will host their second annual “Blackhawks Training Camp Festival,” at the United Center from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. The event includes the opportunity to watch a live Blackhawks practice, a 5K walk/run and 10K inline skate named “The Mad Dash to Madison,” a three-on-three street hockey tournament, live music and more.
