The Chicago Blackhawks game on February 25 will be very special for many reasons.

It is no secret that Patrick Kane will be returning to the United Center as a member of the Detroit Red Wings.


Chelios Jersey Retirement

Chris Chelios' jersey will also be retired before the game on Sunday. Starting at 3:00 PM, expect an exciting evening full of stories.

Luke Richardson recalls Chelios' hard work and his respect for his former opponent as he worked on and off-ice to be the elite player he always was. He lost in 1992's conference finals with the Edmonton Oilers to Chelios-led Blackhawks.

Battle Of Bedard and Kane

It will be a game of consequences as well as an epic battle between Patrick Kane and Connor Bedard.

Kane's return should provide fans with a lot of nostalgia, as the three-time Stanley Cup winner is expected to create a great deal of excitement.

The battle starts when Chelios' jersey is retired and the puck drops at 5 PM, as Connor Bedard looks to establish himself as the Blackhawks' new leader.

As the Detroit Red Wings are coming off a 6-1 win against the St. Louis Blues, Bedard is going to have to be on his game if he wants to put a damper on the team's playoff hopes.
