Bears' Justin Fields, teammates attend Blackhawks game


Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields and some of his teammates were in attendance for Thursday's Blackhawks game at the United Center.

The Blackhawks are facing the Seattle Kraken — the NHL's latest established team — and it's the first time the team is playing in Chicago.

In the first period, Fields waved from his suite and the stadium erupted in cheers for the second-year quarterback.

Before the game, the Blackhawks celebrated winger Marian Hossa, who signed a one-day contract to officially retire as a member of the team. The Blackhawks also announced that they will retire his No. 81 and hang it up in the United Center's famous rafters, joining Glenn Hall, Keith Magnuson, Pierre Pilote, Bobby Hull, Denis Savard, Stan Mikita and Tony Esposito.

Since getting drafted last year, Fields has shown his support for each of Chicago's teams by attending games for the Bulls, Cubs, White Sox and the Sky.
