The Chicago Blackhawks have faced their share of terrifying opponents throughout their illustrious history. It’s time to rank the most hideous and horrifying adversaries to get in the Halloween spirit. Each of these opponents handed out plenty of tricks and took plenty of treats from the Blackhawks throughout their careers.

Of course, the Blackhawks have dished out some fear of their own over the past decade with three Stanley Cups since 2010. Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Marian Hossa, Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook and Corey Crawford may still haunt opponents in their nightmares created over the past few seasons. Let’s take a look at the players who inflicted fear into the Blackhawks and fans alike every time they took the ice.

5. Brett Hull 

Hull lived to dominate the Blackhawks during his 11-year tenure with the St. Louis Blues. Hull scored 92 points in 97 games against Chicago throughout his Hall of Fame career. Hull’s 92 points against the Blackhawks were the third-most by a player against a single opponent during that player’s career. That’s not to say the opportunities weren’t there. Hull played 743 shifts against the Blackhawks, the most against a single team in his career, and took 350 shots against the ’Hawks, which was his second-most against one opponent.

Hull was a Blackhawks killer; some may even compare him to Freddy Kruger when he played against Chicago.
