The training camp will last four days, Sept. 12 to 15, at the Compton Family Ice Arena on the University of Notre Dame campus. The new arena is located south of the Joyce Center and west of the new Fighting Irish track and field facility.
Following the camp the Hawks will return to the United Center, Sept. 16, for the annual training camp festival, tickets will be available at 10 a.m. for $5 on Friday.
This is the first time the Hawks have held training camp at Notre Dame and the move can be largely attributed to General Manager Stan Bowman, a Notre Dame alum.
