In honor of Bowman, the first 2,500 fans to the BMO will receive a Scotty Bowman bobble head courtesy of U.S. Cellular. The bobble heads will commemorate the Blackhawk’s Senior Advisor to Hockey Operations’ 13 Stanley Cup championships as both a coach and executive. Bowman will also be signing autographs during the game.
The coaching legend has won an NHL record nine Stanley Cups as a head coach, five with Montreal, one with Pittsburgh and three with Detroit. He is also the NHL’s all-time leader in wins as a head coach with 1,471. To go along with his nine championships as a coach, the Montreal, Quebec native won another four Cups as a hockey executive, one with Pittsburgh, one with Detroit and two with Chicago.
