Before the banner is raised there are a few pre-season games to be played. Here is the Chicago Blackhawks pre-season schedule.

September 17- Detroit Red Wings vs Chicago Blackhawks at United Center 7pm

September 19- Pittsburgh Penguins vs Chicago Blackhawks at United Center 7pm

September 20- Chicago Blackhawks at Washington Capitals at Verizon Center 6pm

Septmeber 22- Chicago Blackhawks at Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena 4pm

September 23- Chicago Blackhawks at Pittsburgh Penguins at Consol Energy Center 6pm

Spetember 28- Washington Capitals at Chicago Blackhawks at United Center  7pm

There should be a lot of competition for the last few roster spots by all the big stars of the Rockford Ice Hogs. If you’re looking for a lot of Toews and Kane you will be dissappointed but if your ready to watch Brandon Pirri and Drew LeBlanc this will be a great pre-season!

What do you think? Are you excited about pre-season already?
