Blackhawks prospect MacKenzie Entwistle tries to win the OHL’s J. Ross Robertson Cup for a second straight year when the Guelph Storm host the Ottawa 67’s on Sunday afternoon.

Blackhawks prospect Josiah Slavin and the Chicago Steel look to even the USHL’s Clark Cup Final at 1-1 when they play Game 2 against the Stampede in Sioux Falls.

Elsewhere in Chicago sports, the Fire shut out Minnesota United 2-0 at SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview. The Cubs walked it off again with a 2-1 win in 15 innings against the Brewers. The White Sox’s 7-2 victory over the Blue Jays snapped a three-game skid. Both the Cubs and White Sox will be in action Sunday as well as the Red Stars, who host the North Carolina Courage in Bridgeview.
