69 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.

Good afternoon Blackhawks fans! We finally say goodbye to  July and the 70’s and hello to August and the 60’s in our countdown to October 9th.  No player has ever wore #69 in Blackhawks history but tomorrow we do run into a jersey number that has been worn in a game by a Blackhawks player.  So today we take a look at penalty minutes in a season.

  1. Mike Peluso- 408 1991-92
  2. Dave Manson-352 1988-89
  3. Bob Probert-326 1996-97
  4. Mike Peluso-320 1990-91
  5. Bryan Marchment-313 1992-93
  6. Steve Smith-304 1991-92
  7. Al Secord-303 1981-82
  8. Wayne Van Dorp-303 1989-90
  9. Dave Manson-301 1989-90
  10. Keith Magnuson-291 1970-71
  11. Chris Chelios-282 1992-93
  12. Phil Russell- 260 1974-75
  13. Terry Ruskowski-252 1979-80
  14. Dave Hutchison-246 1981-82

Looking at the list is there anything that surprised you? I personally thought that Chris Chelios would make the list more than once.

Be on the lookout for our Countdown to Faceoff series as we continue to work our way to the season opener on October 9th. We’re 69 days from the season opener.  Is it October yet???
