The Blackhawks announced Thursday the launch of the Blackhawks Fan Salute program as an expression of gratitude to the fans for suffering through the lockout.
Through the program, the Hawks will give away 1,000 autographed jerseys over the course of the 99-day NHL season. The Hawks will also show their appreciation by awarding 250 autographed pucks and 100 autographed sticks signed by a current player or Hawks ambassador, 200-level tickets and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, such as a postgame player meet-and-greet, pregame dinner with an ambassador in the Stadium Club, glass seats and more.
In addition, all season ticketholders and partial-plan holders are automatically entered to win and will also be issued gift certificates valid for merchandise at all team retail locations and United Center concession stands.
