HockeyFest 2019

By webmaster assistant, 05/08/19, 10:30PM EDT


I’m reaching out with information about HockeyFest, the street hockey tournament we are hosting at the United Center on June 22-23. Players of all skills and ages are invited to attend – including adults. Our goal is to have at least one team registered from each youth hockey organization to make sure the Illinois youth hockey community is well represented!


We’d appreciate if you could pass this information along to the appropriate team managers or coaches at your rink. 


  • Tournament participants will receive a voucher for (1) complimentary ticket to one of the Blackhawks three preseason games leading into the 2019-20 season
  • Division winners will receive an exclusive Blackhawks retail item and will be invited to a VIP reception at Fifth Third Arena that includes a tour of the Blackhawks Locker Room.
  • Each registered team is guaranteed to play at least four games
  • 70% of teams will make the playoffs.
  • The surrounding family-friendly festival will offer music, ample food and beverage options, player and alumni appearances, and interactive games such as the hardest shot, mini stick rinks, and shooting accuracy.


We are giving all rink partners and local teams a $50 discount if you use the code “PARTNER” when registering.

Last but not least…this month we will be shooting a HockeyFest commercial to promote the tournament.  We will choose a couple registered teams from various divisions to participate in this shoot. These teams will also have the chance to meet the Blackhawks player featured in the promotion.  Name will not be announced ahead of time.  If you’d like to be considered for this event, please register by Friday, May 10!


Please contact Sam Ratty at with any tournament questions.
