I would have guessed A. but the correct answer is C. Dick Redmond
On February 12, 1977 against Colorado, Dick Redmond became the first Blackhawk defenseman to record a hat trick. Redmond was an offensive defenseman who was average at best on the defensive end so it makes sense that he was able to put together the first hat trick from a D-Man. This would be the only hat trick for Redmond in a Blackhawks jersey but at least he can always say he was the first!
