Bernie Nicholls Days Until The Blackhawks Season Opener

We had so much fun doing our Countdown to Faceoff series last season that we decided to do it again.  In case you’re new to the series, we’ll do a roster preview as we count down the days until the Chicago Blackhawks  October 9th season opener against the Dallas Stars.

We are slowly getting to the end of the 90’s in our countdown to the Blackhawks opener.  The Blackhawks have had two players wear #92 but none of since 2003.  Here is a look at the two Blackhawk s that have worn #92 during the history of the Blackhawks.
