BlackhawksSOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — The Chicago Blackhawks will be back at the University of Notre Dame to open training camp for a second straight season.

The Blackhawks announced Sunday that the team will begin training camp at the campus in South Bend on Sept. 19 and stay through Sept. 21 before returning to Chicago. General manager Stan Bowman said the team had received an overwhelming positive response last year at Notre Dame and called the Compton Family Ice Arena there a world-class facility.

The team says a complete training camp schedule, including Notre Dame ticket information, will be released later.

The Blackhawks missed a chance for a second straight Stanley Cup when they lost 5-4 to the Los Angeles Kings in overtime in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals earlier this month.
