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.
Well we have more players that have wore #47 than yesterdays #48 but again if any future Blackhawk wants to own a number without much history #47 is the number for them. Here’s a quick look at the very brief history of #47
Adam Bennett 1992-1993
Bennett’s short stay with the Hawks ended with a trade to the Edmonton Oilers for Kevin Todd.
Lasse Kukkonen 2004
Evan Brophey- Brophey played in one game in 2011 and like a lot of these one game people I don’t remember him at all.
Which #47 do you remember most or do you not recall any of them?
