The Chicago Blackhawks will play their final game before their bye week when they host the Detroit Red Wings and the starting lineup will have a special guest with them when they take to the blue line for the playing of the national anthem.
Former Blackhawk Eric Daze will be on hand and in uniform to take part in the “One More Shift” promotion.
Daze was drafted in the fourth-round of 1993 NHL Entry Draft and played 11 seasons with the Blackhawks where he racked up 226 goals and 398 points in 601 career games. He had four seasons of at least 30 goals and scored 20 or more goals in each season between 1995 and 2003. Daze was the MVP of the 2002 NHL All-Star Game.
Daze will be the third former player to take “One More Shift” this season as Bryan Bickell and Al Secord have already been honored. The promotion started last season and honored Ed Belfour, Steve Larmer, Jeremy Roenick and Denis Savard.
