We’re heading into the dog days of the offseason, counting the days until the Chicago Blackhawks 2014 Season kicks off. We’re going to do a Top 100 list of all time Chicago Blackhawks. It’s a fun way to pass the time and take a stroll down Memory Lane.

Grant Mulvey is one big conflicting story, he was a scorer but not really a pretty scorer. He was tough, hard-nosed instigator but a horrible fighter.  Mulvey ranks 39th all-time in Blackhawks team history in points but was known basically as a garbage man when it comes to goal scoring.

In the era when lines were named (which I really miss except for That 70’s line) Mulvey teamed up with Rich Preston, and Terry Ruskowski to form the RPM line.  This line did some great things including a night in St Louis when Mulvey had the greatest goal scoring night in Blackhawks history when he scored 5 times and added 2 assists.  Mulvey still holds this record to this day.

His deepest playoff run was with the 1982 team that reached the Conference Finals before losing to the Vancouver Canucks in 5 games. Mulvey’s play lended to injuries including a bad knee which would end his career playing all but 12 games wearing a Blackhawks jersey.

Mulvey had a great 70’s stache like most players in that era and holds a record that doesn’t look likely to be tied or bested anytime soon.

What are your memories of Mulvey?
