Blackhawks are selling pieces of United Center ice

In June, the Blackhawks won their third Stanley Cup championship in six years, and clinched a title on home ice for the first time in 77 years. Just in time for the holiday season, the club is selling off limited-edition pieces of United Center ice from the championship-winning game.  

The ice isn't actually ice, though—it's water. According to the team's website, buyers are purchasing "vials and cubes of melted home ice collected by United Center staff." If you were to crack one open you'd be able to drink a few drops of fluid that might contain a bit of Duncan Keith's sweat, which sounds pretty amazing.

The memorabilia will be available at the Blackhawks Store locations on Michigan Avenue, Oakbrook Center and Old Orchard Mall on Friday, December 11 for $99 per vial or $49 per cube. They'll also be available for phone orders on Monday, December 14. All of the proceeds from the sales will go to Blackhawks Charities.

This might be the only occasion where it's acceptable to give someone a vial of water for Christmas, so you should probably jump on it. No word yet on whether drinking the water will improve the Blackhawks' championship prospects in 2016.
