The Blackhawks’ “One More Shift” program is an ode to former players that allows fans to recognize them one more time as they skate on the United Center ice. Bolland will take the ice during the national anthem after starting lineups are announced. In-arena elements will also feature highlights of his career with the Blackhawks.
Chicago drafted Bolland in the second round (32nd overall) in the 2004 NHL draft, and he played a key role in winning the Stanley Cup in 2010 and 2013. In the 2010 playoffs, he tallied 16 points (eight goals, eight assists) in 22 games to help Chicago win its first championship in 49 years. He had three goals and three assists in the 2010 Stanley Cup Final, including multi-point efforts in Games 1 and 5. In the 2013 playoffs, he tallied six points highlighted by the Cup-clinching goal.
Friday’s game is one of five nights commemorating the 10th anniversary of the 2010 Stanley Cup championship. There will also be “One More Shift” recognitions Nov. 21, Dec. 15 and Jan. 7 during 2010 anniversary nights. The fifth and final anniversary night will be March 19, which will feature multiple members of the 2010 team.
