Jostens and the Chicago Blackhawks have announced they will partner again to create a customized championship ring to commemorate the team's 2013 Stanley Cup win. The ring, which is currently being crafted, will tell the story of the Blackhawks' remarkable season that ended with the team's second National Hockey League championship in four seasons and fifth overall. The one-of-a-kind ring will be presented to members of the 2013 team and executives during a special ceremony later this month.
Jostens master jewelers and the Chicago Blackhawks also will collaborate to develop a collection of rings and Blackhawks memorabilia that will be available for fans to celebrate the club's 2013 championship season. The collection, which will be available by the start of the upcoming NHL regular-season, will offer every Blackhawks fan the opportunity to own a piece of team history. The Blackhawks will host special events where fans and ticket holders can purchase items from the collection.
"We're honored to once again partner with the Chicago Blackhawks and Chairman Rocky Wirtz to design an eye-catching championship ring that celebrates the team's remarkable 2013 Stanley Cup win," said Chris Poitras, director, Sports Marketing and Development, Jostens. "In addition, we're excited to create a jewelry collection reflecting the Blackhawks' memorable season so that fans have a chance to own a piece of Chicago Blackhawks history."
Founded in 1897, Jostens has produced championship rings for professional sports teams and athletes for over 60 years. In addition to collaborating with the Blackhawks, Jostens has worked with the Bears, Bulls and White Sox organizations to recognize Chicago's hometown championship teams.
