It is that time of the week again where we spotlight a throwback player from the Chicago Blackhawks past. This week’s selection for Throwback Thursday is Blackhawks legend Stan Mikita. I hope this may bring back some of those special memories of his playing time with the Chicago Black Hawks and if not maybe it will shed some light on a player you may not have known much about.

Stan Mikita started his hockey career playing junior hockey for the St. Catharines Teepees of the Ontario Hockey Association. After three seasons of excelling there he was brought up to their parent team the Chicago Black Hawks in 1959. In his second full season he became adjusted to the play in the NHL and led all players in goals scored during the playoffs with 6. Those 6 goals also helped the Black Hawks earn their first Stanley Cup Championship since 1938.
