We are down to 87 days left until the Blackhawks season opener and while we are in the 80’s it will be hit or miss on if he land on a jersey number that has been worn by a Chicago Blackhawk.  At #87 we are just past the Blackhawks playmaker and right before the future.  Today we will look at the Blackhawks all-time power play goal list.
