Chicago Blackhawks fan Cary Stolarczyk can ice away a cool million. He wins a million bucks as part of a promotion with the Illinois State Lottery.[SIGN UP: Get bizarre news sent to you]

The winning seat number was selected in the first period at Chicago's home game Monday against the Minnesota Wild. To win, Chicago had to score at exactly the 10:00 mark of the second period.

Well, right wing Martin Havlat scored Chicago's lone goal at just the right time for Stolarczyk. The Blackhawks say he was introduced before last night's game against St. Louis.

But the Blackhawks aren't as lucky as their millionaire fan. The team lost both games.
