Chicago Blackhawks: Travis Moen 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.

We finally hit the 50’s in our Chicago Blackhawks countdown to banner raising night and that means we will now have jersey numbers to look back at or look forward to the rest of the way to October 7th.

Three Chicago Blackhawks have worn the #59 in franchise history, but none of them wore the number very long while playing for the Blackhawks.  So here are the few good players that have worn #59.

Sergei Krivokrasov-1993-1998





Game Winning Goals-10

Travis Moen-2004





Game Winning Goals-2

Rob Klinkhammer

Klinkhammer was on the ice for one game in Chicago and picked up a +1 and that was his last NHL experience.

Which player on this list do you remember the most that have worn #59?

Last year we did a countdown of the greatest Chicago Blackhawks and Doug Jarrett landed in the 59th spot so here is what we had to say about him last summer.

"Doug Jarrett 1964-1975Games-721Goals-38Assists-178Points-216Penalty Minutes-608PlayoffsGames-99Goals-7Assists-16Points-23Penalty Minutes-82Doug Jarrett was one of the steadiest defenseman of his era and due to his ability to pin or check the opposing players against the boards they gave him the nickname the “Chairman of the Boards”. Jarrett was very even headed player so Blackhawks legendary coach Billy Reah often used him with young Keith Magnuson on a defensive paring making them a great pairing in the NHL during the 70’s.Jarrett is 5th all-time in Blackhawks history in games played as a defensman but wasn’t able to hoist the Stanley Cup with the 1971 Stanley Cup Finals the most heartbreaking.  Jarrett also played on the 73 team that reached the Finals.Jarrett was a cut up along with Dennis Hull so even though he was steady on the ice he was Mr. Loose off the ice.Jarrett made it with the Blackhawks for 11 seasons before getting shipped to the New York Rangers where he would play one season before having to retire due to a back injury.Do you have any memories of Jarrett?"

That’s it! Only 59 days until opening night!
