Ivan Boldirev didn’t become a Chicago Blackhawks until his 6th season in the NHL after getting traded from the California Seals to the Blackhawks.  Boldirev played over 1,000 NHL games and collected almost 900 points, but his most consistent scoring was during his tenure with the Blackhawks.

Boldirev teamed up with Grant Mulvey and Darcy Rota for a very killer scoring line and he still ranks 34th all-time in Blackhawks points.  Boldirev may not have been a huge physical presence but when you search Youtube a fight is all you get when searching him.
Boldirev was really a very good puck handler which suited him well on the Blackhawks powerplay.  The only downfall when looking back at Boldirev’s career is how little success the Blackhawks had during his time in Chicago, but his scoring during his stay lands him at #68 on our all-time list.

What do you think? Too High, Too Low or Shouldn’t have cracked the Top 100?
