Introducing MB Ice Arena
The Chicago Blackhawks have announced that the team’s new practice facility will be known as MB Ice Arena – Chicago Blackhawks Community Rink, located at 1801 W. Jackson Blvd. In addition to serving as the practice home for the Blackhawks and visiting National Hockey League teams, over 90 percent of the facility’s use will be for the community, youth and adult hockey leagues.
The new arena, set to open in late November, will house two regulation sized NHL rinks and will feature 22 team and public locker rooms, medical and rehab facilities, a public fitness training center and a media center. The facility’s amenities include a restaurant and coffee shop, a rooftop deck and additional space for public functions. The building also includes several classrooms that will host programs for Chicago Public School students on the importance of health, wellness, nutrition, physical fitness and STEM education.
