The Chicago Blackhawks' ownership is expanding their portfolio by acquiring the USHL's Chicago Steel, a junior hockey powerhouse.

The Steel's consistent success, clinching the league's regular-season title for four consecutive seasons, and developing top NHL prospects like Macklin Celebrini and Adam Fantilli, make them a prominent franchise in American junior hockey.


This significant move by the Blackhawks' parent company, the Wirtz Corporation, comes shortly after the unexpected passing of principal owner and chairman, Rocky Wirtz, at the age of 70.
