We had so much fun doing our Countdown to Faceoff series last season that we decided to do it again.  In case you’re new to the series, we’ll do a roster preview as we count down the days until the Chicago Blackhawks  October 9th season opener against the Dallas Stars.

We won’t hit a number that any Chicago Blackhawk has worn in a game until we get to 94 so with the countdown at 99 we could look at the greatest goal scorer in NHL history in Wayne Gretzky but I’ll pass on that instead we will look some Blackhawks season records.

Blackhawk Season Records

Wins- 52 (2009-2010)

Losses-51 (1953-1954)

Be on the lookout for our Countdown to Faceoff series as we continue to work our way to the season opener on October 9th. We’re 99 days from the season opener.  Is it October yet???

Let’s Go Hawks!!!!
