More from All Time Blackhawks

I must admit after doing a bunch of lists of Blackhawks all-time records the names on this list have been the most amazing and a real walk down memory lane. What name surprises you the most?

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 83 days from the season opener.  Is it October yet???
