First stop on the Stanley Cup off-season tour: Wrigley Field.
Members of the Blackhawks will take a victory lap around the field and throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
The Blackhawks brought the Stanley Cup to Wrigley Field in 2010 before a Cubs-White Sox game. Blackhawks players paraded onto the field as team anthem "Chelsea Dagger" blared from the Wrigley Field speakers before taking a team photo with the cross-town baseball rivals. The White Sox scheduled a separate Blackhawks Night later that year at U.S. Cellular Field, where fans in attendance were given miniature Stanley Cup replicas.
Blackhawks players were honored at Cubs and White Sox games after the 2013 title, but the Stanley Cup was not present.
Fans in attendance at Wrigley Field for the Cubs game against the Reds last Saturday were treated to an unscheduled viewing of Game 5 during a rain delay. The Blackhawks won Game 5 against the Tampa Bay Lightning before finishing off the series at home for the first time since 1938.
A parade and rally have been scheduled for Thursday.
