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.
Harold “Mush” March 1928-1945
Stanley Cup Championships-2
Mush March started with the Blackhawks just after the franchise was formed and was on a team that struggled mightily and yet helped transform it in 5 short seasons to a Stanley Cup Champion in 1934. Marsh’s goal in double overtime against the Detroit Red Wings won the Stanley Cup for the Hawks and a player that wasn’t the greatest goal scorer of his era but a clutch goal scorers legend began.
March scored the first ever goal in Maple Leaf Gardens when it opened (he also was there in his 90′s when it closed) when the Hawks visited Toronto on it’s opening night and like someone named Mr. Patrick Kane always came up with the goal when the Blackhawks needed it the most.
March was on the ice again in 1938 when the Blackhawks surprised the hockey world with their second Cup in 4 years. March played all 17 seasons of his NHL career with the Blackhawks and still ranks 28th in franchise history in points and 14th all-time in games played and probably if he played any games with TV involved he would probably rank higher in this list especially with the Two Cup wins.
So what do you think too low? Mush is a great nickname Too!
