As the Chicago Blackhawks prepare to hire a permanent general manager, the organization's leadership group aims to keep fans in the know. Owner Rocky Wirtz, CEO Danny Wirtz, and President of Business Operations Jamie Faulkner will host a townhall-style meeting to provide an update "on the greater vision of the organization moving forward."
On Wednesday, Danny Wirtz released a statement regarding the Blackhawks' general manager search. He stated the team will begin interviewing candidates in the near future and aims to hire a permanent general manager before the NHL's trade deadline on March 21.
"We will be as transparent as possible throughout this process," Wirtz said. "We are planning on hosting a townhall-style meeting next week with our fans, partners, staff and media to further explain the greater vision of the Chicago Blackhawks. Details on that are to follow."
Those details are now available. The executives will host the meeting at 6:00 PM CST on Wednesday, Feb. 2 before the Blackhawks host the Minnesota Wild. The Blackhawks will stream the session live on their YouTube channel and Twitter account.
