No. 21: D Earl Seibert

Seasons captain: 1940-41 through 1941-42

Win percentage: .441 (40-52-10)

Playoff appearances: 2

Longest playoff run: Semifinal loss

Regular-season statistics as captain: 92 games, 10 goals, 31 assists

Playoff statistics as captain: 8 games

Seibert spent parts of 10 seasons with the Blackhawks in the heart of his Hall of Fame career, earning All-Star status in all but one of them. So he was an easy pick for captain ahead of the 1940-41 season at age 29, in the prime of his career. From the blue line, he put up some fine regular-season stats during his captaincy. He also helped the team to a pair of playoff appearances, though his overall win percentage isn’t the most impressive on this list. But, his lack of impactful statistics in the postseason drags him down, even if he was a defenseman.
