According to a report from the Chicago Sun-Times, the Blackhawks organization dealt with a disturbance off the ice during their 4-3 loss on Friday night to the Winnipeg Jets.
According to authorities, mascot ‘Tommy Hawk’ was attacked by a male fan around 11:15 PM on the United Center concourse.
A video of the incident was spreading on social media and the Chicago Police have since confirmed the disturbance.
No one is in custody as of Saturday evening, though there is a physical description of the alleged attacker.
A Blackhawks spokesman gave this statement:
We are gathering the facts and will have no further comment at this time, pending our investigation.
Prince Amukamara seems like a pretty good dude.
Rams fan here w/ a dope story: One of my best friends' brother, who has special needs, met Prince at his work. Got a picture with him, and at some point asked him if he could get a jersey. Next day, in comes Prince with a signed authentic. Amazing guy. Can pick off Goff all he wants now.
It's a great story, and a testament to the kind of impact these players can have on the everyday lives of fans. Plus now apparently he can pick off Goff all he wants!
