The Hawks set a preseason franchise record tonight when 20,553 fans were at the United Center for their game against the Detroit Red Wings. Prior to tonight's game, the highest attendance for a preseason game was on September 19, 2009 when 19,734 fans attended the game against the Washington Capitals.
