Blackhawks Fans Back in Force

From the Canadian Press,

As a video on the Jumbotron before a recent game proclaimed, “Hockey never left Chicago, but it has definitely returned.”

“It’s great to see this many people here,” Brian Jack said, keeping a protective hand on the shoulder of his 8-year-old son, Kevin, as they made their way through the crowded concourse before Monday night’s win over the Colorado Avalanche.

“It’s nice to see energy in the building. There’s electricity in the air.”

A year after the season-ticket base dwindled to 3,400, it’s now a franchise-record 14,000. Every game so far has sold out, including a regular-season record 22,690 for the Oct. 25 game against the Red Wings. Merchandise sales are up a whopping 60 per cent from last year.
