The Blackhawks will host the Tom Kurvers Prospect Showcase at Fifth Third Arena in September this year, which is also expected to be open to the public. The event is named after the assistant general manager of the Minnesota Wild, who passed away last June after a long battle with cancer. This is the second year the Blackhawks and Wild have hosted this event along with last year’s games in Minnesota. The Blackhawks will play two games against the Wild on Friday, September 16 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, September 18 at 1 p.m. Chicago prospects will also hold practices Sept. 14 and 15 before games.
Rosters, media availability and more detailed fan information for both events will be released at a later date.
