No. 9: LW Bobby Hull (1957-72)

Setting aside Hull’s off-ice issues, the Hall of Famer was easily one of the best to ever wear the Indian Head. Like Chelios, it’s disappointing Hull didn’t retire with the Blackhawks, as he was eventually poached by the World Hockey Association.

With Chicago, Hull finished second in Calder Trophy voting, made 12 All-Star teams, won the Art Ross Trophy three times, took the Hart Memorial Trophy twice and added the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy once for good measure. He led the NHL in goals seven different times as well.

After his rookie season, Hull never fell below 50 points in a season, maxing out at 107 in 1968-69. He was a revolutionary player on the ice with the way he shot the puck and used his speed to his advantage. It makes sense, then that his 1,153 points with Chicago are the second most in team history (behind Stan Mikita‘s 1,467).

Next: No. 10
