Looking for an unusual piece of sports memorabilia for your game room or office? The Blackhawks have an ice breaker for you.

The team saved some of the United Center ice it played on during the Stanley Cup run and is selling vials of it melted — for $99 a pop — with the proceeds to benefit Blackhawks charities.

The water is inside an etched vial with engraved rubber stoppers that resemble pucks. The vial also comes with a leather box with a Blackhawks logo on top and a certificate of authenticity. Only 2,013 will be sold, and orders will ship in December.

The Hawks aren’t the first team to sell pieces of their home surface. The Mavericks sold parts of their home floor after their run to the 2011 NBA championship, and the Colts sold pieces of the RCA Dome turf — they even sold locker-room toilets — when the stadium was torn down to make way for Lucas Oil Stadium in 2008.
