Cubs Players Bring World Series Celebration to Hawks Game

The Chicago Blackhawks weren't the only Chicago athletes to hit the ice at the United Center Sunday night -- it appears several World Series champions also made an appearance.

And they may have brought some winning luck with them.

Kyle Schwarber, David Ross, Jason Heyward and Mike Montgomery all attended the game wearing Hawks jerseys with their names on them. Even Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts was there. 

They also brought along a special surprise for Hawks fans -- their trophy. 

In a stunning celebration before the game kicked off at the United Center, the Blackhawks decked out the ice with Cubs logos, "W" flags and the words "2016 World Series Champions." The players carried the trophy onto the ice, waving a "W" flag as fans went wild, singing "Go Cubs Go." 

And it appears their presence may have been good luck for the Hawks, who went on to win an overtime victory over the Stars that night. 

The Hawks have been prominent supporters of the Cubs in their remarkable, history-making season this year. 

Blackhawks Chairman Rocky Wirtz issued a statement after the World Series win congratulating the Cubs on their title:

“On behalf of our family and organization, congratulations to the Ricketts family and the Chicago Cubs for an incredible season and for winning the World Series. The unwavering loyalty of Chicago sports fans has been rewarded once again with yet another team being crowned world champions. Well done.”

The Blackhawks brought the Stanley Cup to Wrigley Field on multiple occasions after championship victories, including during the summer of 2013 when they brought the Cup to Wrigley before a crosstown series game between the Cubs and White Sox.
