3. Troy Murray (Round 3 1980 Draft)
Many know Murray as the color commentator for the Blackhawks on WGN Radio, but Murray is also one of the best two-way forwards in Blackhawks history. Murray scored 197 goals and had 291 helpers and won the Selke Trophy in the 1985-86 season, when he scored 45 goals with 54 assists. Murray also was an instrumental penalty killer and was a jack of all trades center.

Murray went to the playoffs in all 12 seasons with the Hawks, but never got further than the Conference final. His tenure with the Hawks concluded after the 1990-91 season and the year after the Hawks lost in the Stanley Cup final. He never regained his form in stints with Winnipeg, Ottawa, Colorado and Pittsburgh. However, Murray is one of the most underrated players in Hawks history.
