A Chicago Blackhawks Roadwatch Party returned to the Libertyville Sports Complex on Friday for the fourth year in a row.
Blackhawks fans watched their team play the Columbus Blue Jackets on a big-screen TV.
The event included appearances by the Ice Crew Girls and mascot Tommy Hawk. Jim Cornelison sang the national anthem, Chet Coppock was the master of ceremonies, and Hawks ambassador Jamal Mayers from last year's Stanley Cup team also attended.
Fans received a Blackhawks rally towel, and the event began with a showing of the film "17 Seconds."
Giveaways, contests and pregame activities were also part of the family-friendly event.
