Every year there are milestones achieved on every NHL team.  Here is a look at the possible milestones that the current roster of Chicago Blackhawks players could achieve in the 2013-2014 season. All of these possible milestones go under the assumption that these players play the majority of the season.

Patrick Kane-300 assists  Kane currently sits at 275 assists and during his 6 year career has averaged 45 assists during a full 82 game slate so 25 more assists seems reasonable.

Patrick Kane-500 points Kane currently sits at 424 career points and during his 6 year career averages 70 points so this one will be could be a nail biter at the end of the season.

Patrick Sharp-200 career goals Sharp sits at 189 career goals and if he remains healthy his career averages say that he should blow by the 200 goal plateau.

Patrick Sharp-400 points- Sharp only needs 10 points to pass 400 so he could easily have this milestone by November.

Jonathan Toews-200 career goals- Toews needs a solid season of 33 goals to achieve the 200 goal milestone. Toews career high in goals is 34 so this one is not a sinch.

Jonathan Toews-400 points Toews sits at 372 career points so a healthy season average easily eclipses 400 points.

Brent Seabrook– 200 assists  Seabrook is at 190 career assists and averages around 20 a season so he can have this knocked out before the Olympic break.

Marian Hossa– 1,000 points Hossa sits 65 career points from the 1,000 point plateau. During his two 82 game seasons in Chicago he’s averaged 67 points so this could come down to the very end of the season. Hossa is only 5 goals away from 100 career goals with the Blackhawks.

Bryan Bickell-100 points Bickell is 10 points away from 100 career points. Everyone is expecting huge things from Bickell so there better be no reason to sweat 10 points.

Nick Leddy-100 points Leddy is 38 points away from 100 career points. If Leddy continues his career trend in the scoring department he should be able to get this number.

Brandon Bollig-1 career point, Bollig still doesn’t have a career regular season point.

Joel Quenneville-700 career wins Quenneville sits at 660 career wins not only could he achieve the 700 club with 40 victories this coming season, with his 33rd win would sit 3rd all-time in wins only behind Scotty Bowman (1,244)  and Al Arbour (782)

Which milestone will be the most impressive?
