While a Stanley Cup is always the goal, individual accomplishments are also great for the Chicago Blackhawks

It can be difficult to find something to talk about for all 82 regular-season games in the NHL. With some teams, like the Chicago Blackhawks in many recent years, you’re just waiting for the playoffs to roll around. It’s hard to get excited all the time during a season that stretches from early October to early April.

One thing that does tend to excite fans, and players as well (even if they don’t acknowledge it), is individual accomplishments. When a player or coach reaches a milestone or is close to reaching a milestone, it’s something fans can get behind — fans of that player’s or coach’s team, or even fans of other teams.

Today, we’re going to take a look at one to three accomplishments on the line in the 2016-17 season for each current Blackhawk. For purposes of not listing 75 players on here, I’m only looking at the guys currently listed on the roster within the Blackhawks’ website. (Note: Michal Kempny won’t be included in this, since he has no NHL stats.)
