The Blackhawks have no plans to change their name

(Chicago) The Chicago Blackhawks are going to keep their name, and they have no plans to change it for the foreseeable future.

Blackhawks president and COO Danny Wirtz, who spoke for the first time since the Cleveland Indians’ decision to change their name on Monday, repeated the message his team hammered out over the summer, after the saga of team names inspired by Indigenous communities returned to center stage.

“We have to respect the Cleveland Indians’ decision, but we are still determined to keep our name and our branding,” Wirtz said Thursday.
