The Chicago Blackhawks are preparing to welcome fans back to the United Center, following in the footsteps of other teams across the NHL who are re-opening with limited capacity.
Earlier today, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced that the United Center can now officially operate at 25% capacity for Blackhawks and Chicago Bulls NBA games. That translates to just over 5,200 fans per game.
Blackhawks coach Jeremy Colliton has a message for fans returning this weekend: We're happy to have you back, but please don't tell us how to run the PP.
