“Partnering with a top echelon organization like the Chicago Mission allows us to increasingly aid the development of youth hockey players across the Chicagoland area from the time they learn to skate until they head to college,” Blackhawks CEO John McDonough said in a statement. “We are looking forward to being a larger part of the Mission’s evolution, while following the progress of so many bright careers.”
“We are incredibly excited to be able to call the Blackhawks Fifth Third Arena Arena home to the Chicago Mission and couldn’t be more thankful for the support the Blackhawks have shown for our organization,” Chicago Mission hockey director Gino Cavallini said in the statement. “The state-of-the-art facilities will provide us with the chance to further expand our training programs and continue to put Mission alumni in positions to succeed both on and off the ice.”
