2019 Blackhawks Convention: How to watch on TV, live stream

The 12th annual convention starts Friday.

The 12th annual Blackhawks Convention will begin with the opening ceremony at 5 p.m. Friday at Hilton Chicago.

The event can be watched live on NBC Sports Chicago, which will also have a special “SportsTalk Live” show at 6 p.m. There will also be a live stream available on the network’s app — MyTeams by NBC Sports. It will also air on WGN Radio. A TV replay will air at 11 p.m.

In recent years, Saturday sessions in the International Ballroom have been streamed live on chicagoblackhawks.com, the team’s Facebook and Twitter accounts, as well as on team’s app. NBCSC will not televise the event Saturday.

The three-day event will feature both current Blackhawks players and alumni that will participate in autograph and photo sessions, question-and-answer panels and more.
