On this date in Chicago Blackhawks history,

On March 4, 1990 the Chicago Blackhawks lost 4-1 to the Boston Bruins at the Chicago Stadium. In the contest Blackhawks defenseman played in his 1,000th NHL game all with the Hawks.  Murray was a 3rd round draft pick by the Hawks in 1974 and never left the organization as a player.  He is currently the GM for the Anaheim Ducks.

Murray is 2nd all-time in Blackhawks history in points with 514 and is only 2nd behind his longtime defensive pairing partner Doug Wilson (779). Murray seemed to always be on the ice when I was watching the Hawks or listening to them on the radio as a kid.  It would be safe to say he was never a favorite but he was always reliable for a long time.

Marian Hossa played his 1,000 game yesterday and 23 years ago a longtime Blackhawk played in his 1,000 game.
