The Blackhawks will be well represented on Super Bowl Sunday.

Well not in the Super Bowl itself, but the 10th annual Animal Planet Puppy Bowl before the big game.

The Chicagoland rescue organization ROMP Italian Greyhound Rescue will feature two puppies in this year's Puppy Bowl. 

Taser and Sharpie, two Italian Greyhounds named after the Blackhawks, will run the field with 66 other puppies on Feb. 2.

Both dogs, along with their siblings Crawford and Hossa were born day of the Blackhawks' Stanley Cup Parade and were named after a few of the Hawks star players.

Taser will be in the starting lineup, donning the No. 34 jersey, while Sharpie, wearing No. 21, will appear with the reserves.

ROMP is holding a viewing party at 2 p.m. on Super Bowl Sunday at Deuce's and The Diamonds Club in Wrigleyville for fans to meet Taser and Sharpie, get 'pawtographs' with the puppies and watch Puppy Bowl X.
