Chicago Blackhawks: 75 Days Until Banner Raising

By Keith Schultz

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 raise their 6th Stanley Cup Banner on October 7th season opener against the New York Rangers.

The Chicago Blackhawks are down to 75 days away from banner raising which marks the quarter pole mark in our countdown from 100.  The Chicago Blackhawks are smack dab in the middle of their offseason and boy can it get boring this time of year with just a nugget of information here and there with stories like Patrick Kane getting distracted by Taylor Swift grabbing headlines.

When it comes to our countdown we are smack dab in the middle of a bunch of numbers that have never been worn in Chicago Blackhawks franchise history which makes this time of year a snoozer in the countdown as well unless your into the record books which does interest me. Today, we are looking at the Chicago Blackhawks All-time power play goals. The Chicago Blackhawks have struggled in this department for many of years now, but the core of the current Blackhawks are marching up the All-time list.

In our Chicago Blackhawks countdown of the greatest players in franchise history, at #75 we had Michal Goulet on our list and this is what we had to say about his stay in Chicago.

"Michel Goulet Playing StatsGames-276Goals-92Assists-115Points-207+207Penalty Minutes-212Power Play Goals-32Game Winning Goals-16PlayoffsGames-26Goals-5Assists-9+5Penalty Minutes-114Game Winning Goals-1Goulet was a scorer period.  Goulet thought he was going to be a Quebec Nordique player for his entire career, but in 1990 with the team starting to rebuild they set Goulet to Chicago and he was part of a special team with Chicago in 1992. The Stanley Cup Finals reaching team sure could score with Steve Larmer, Jeremy Roenick, Dirk Graham, and Michel Goulet on the roster just to name a few of the greats on that team.Goulet scored his 500th career goal with the Blackhawks and although he wasn’t a point a game player when he arrived in Chicago he was still a very productive player for Mike Keenan and the Blackhawks.  Goulet had 3 20 goal season with the Blackhawks in his 3 full seasons and probably would have had a fourth if he hadn’t suffered a career ending injury in Montreal in the 1993-1994.Goulet was elected in 1998 to the Hockey Hall of Fame and if it wasn’t for his injury he would be even higher in the All-time rankings.  Goulet was at the tale end of his career but he still could score and he almost got to 100 career goals with the Hawks during his short stay. Here is a look at one of his goals in his Blackhawks career."

Only 75 days left until the Chicago Blackhawks are back on the ice for another season that hopefully ends with another Stanley Cup banner getting raised at the United Center.
