Talking about hitting rock bottom. The Blackhawks were the doormat of the 1954 season. The Blackhawks had a streak to start the season in 53 but it wasn’t a good streak starting the season 0-7-1. The start doomed the Hawks season and this would be the first of four straight seasons of the Hawks finishing last and missing the playoffs in a 6 team league.

Blackhawks #54 All-Time Points Leader-Richard Preston played 429 career games with Blackhawks from 1979-1987 scoring 96 goals and 127 assists with 257 penalty minutes. Preston has a fairly long and unsuccessful career as a coach since leaving the NHL.

Only 54 more days until not only The Stanley Cup Banner #5 heads up to the rafters, but the Presidents Trophy Banner, Western Conference Championship Banner, and Central Division Championship Banner all head up to the United Center rafters!
