On this date in Chicago Blackhawks history,

On February 23, 1991 Michel Goulet collected his 1,000 point of his career.  Goulet did it in dramatic fashion against the Minnesota North Stars (yes NBC they were our rivals not the Wild).  The 1,000 point came on Goulet’s 3rd goal of the game which was his first hat trick in a Blackhawks jersey. Goulet would collect 3 hat tricks during his Blackhawks tenure.

Goulet became the 30th player in the NHL to eclipse the plateau at that time. Goulet played the last 5 seasons of  his long career with the Hawks. He played in 276 games while grabbing 92 goals and 115 assists with the Hawks.

A milestone night for Goulet who ended up with 1,152 points in his career but was not able to help the Hawks win the Cup in 1992 when the Penguins swept them in the Finals.
