6 of 31

No. 27: LW Red Hamill

Seasons captain: 1946-47

Win percentage: .350 (19-37-4)

Playoff appearances: 0

Longest playoff run: N/A

Regular-season statistics as captain: 60 games, 21 goals, 19 assists

He tied his career high in games played in his one season as Blackhawks captain and notched his top single-season assists total in 1946-47. So it wasn’t for a lack of trying that his one season as captain ended with nothing doing for the Blackhawks, as far as the playoffs went. Hamill had a 13-year NHL career, with eight of those seasons coming in Chicago. He wound up with as many playoff penalty minutes (seven) as playoff games played while with the Blackhawks.
