Ryan Chiaverini Faces Blackhawks Alumni


Get ready for some cool action on the ice at the first outdoor Winter Frost Face-Off Classic Puck Off on Friday, February 7 at 4:30pm at MB Financial Park at Rosemont, sponsored by 200×85. Joining ABC’s Windy City Live co-host Ryan Chiaverini are seven Chicago Blackhawk alumni, former professional hockey players, along with Chicago celebs. The good news – this event is free.

Mr. Chiaverini serves as captain competing with Eric Daze, Adrian Aucoin, Murray Bannerman, Dave Mackey, Brian Noonan, Reid Simpson and Gene Ubriaco, all Chicago Blackhawks alumni, ABC 7 Weekend News anchor Ravi Baichwal, ESPN 1000 radio hosts Carmen DeFalco, U.S. Representative Mike Quigley, and former professional hockey players Gino Cavallini, Jose Charbonneau, Mark Kurzawski, Steve Maltais, Steve Martins and Bob Nardella, among others.

Following the game, attendees are invited to Five Roses Pub to meet and greet the hockey players, all for a $10 donation, which benefits the Chicago Blackhawk Alumni Association. This event gets even better – free food will be offered with a viewing party of the Chicago Blackhawks vs. Phoenix Coyotes game scheduled for 8:00 p.m. Parking is free for validation. The catch – drinks are not on the house. Bring cash to fuel your spirits.

Founded by Kevin Mann and Denis Savard 20 years ago, 200×85 offers tournaments, camps and clinics, all located at the Park at Rosemont. Mr. Mann has been playing hockey his entire life. Competing on the ice all through college, Mr. Mann became a hockey coach upon graduation. Co-founder Hockey Hall of Famer, Denis Savard, is a former Blackhawks player. The two teamed up to bring hockey to all age groups and various levels of play. Over two decades of success, these two players love the game.
