No. 14: LW Al Secord (1980-81)

I’m going to cheat a little bit here, as Secord spent most of his Chicago career in No. 20. But the No. 14 in Chicago Blackhawks history is so ridiculously underwhelming, I’m going with Secord here. And I’ll just find someone else for No. 20.

Secord came over to Chicago in a mid-season trade with Boston during the 1980-81 season. The Bruins clearly didn’t realize they were giving up too soon on Secord. After posting 22 points in his first 41 games in Chicago, Secord went on to years of 75 and 86 points, then another of 76 points a little further down the road.

He made the All-Star team in the 75- and 86-point campaigns, and he was also a fairly successful playoff producer. His best postseason runs were 11 points in 12 games in 1983 and 16 points in 15 games in 1985.

Next: No. 15
