Chicago Blackhawks Steve Larmer

1. Steve Larmer (Round 6, 1980) 

Many people think of Stan Mikita, Bobby Hull, Tony Esposito and Denis Savard as the best players in Blackhawks history, but many forget Larmer, who came out of the sixth round in the same draft the Hawks selected Troy Murray.

Larmer also has the highest plus-minus rating in team history with a 182 rating. He also leads the franchise with 153 power play goals and is tied for the franchise record with six hat tricks.

Larmer isn’t only the biggest sleeper in Blackhawks history, but he’s one of the biggest draft day steals in NHL history.
