The 56 Hawks were in the process of finishing last in a 6 team league for the third straight year. The Hawks gave up almost 3 goals a game average which helped lead to their demise. The mid 50’s is one of the worst times in Blackhawks history.
56th all-time in points- Marian Hossa Hossa came to the Hawks in 2010 and has been able to hoist the Stanley Cup twice in four seasons. During that time he’s scored 95 goals with 121 assists and a +71 rating in only 243 games played. Hossa will be counted on again this year to be an offensive leader and to climb this all-time list. How many points do you expect Hossa to score this coming season?
Only 56 days left until the Blackhawks lift Stanley Cup Banner #5!
