SHARE Fans pack United Center for Blackhawks' Training Camp Festival scrimmage

With the start of the NHL season around the corner, the excitement for the 2015-16 Blackhawks is on full display.

The team returned to the United Center for the first time Monday since winning the Stanley Cup for their Training Camp Festival. Fans filled the stands to watch the scrimmage.

Fans of all ages watched as the Blackhawks started to get back to hockey. While most of the players involved were far from the most recognizable, it gave fans of all ages a chance to take in a game.

Entry to the game was free and on a first-come, first-serve basis, giving plenty of fans a rare experience to watch the Blackhawks play.

As some fans noticed, there is an obvious gap in the rafters that will soon be filled.

The Blackhawks have their first preseason game Tuesday in Chicago against the Red Wings. The regular season starts Oct. 7 at home against the Rangers.
