No. 58: LW P.A. Parenteau (2006-07)

The only other option for 58 was Ivan Droppa, who had as many points in 12 games as Parenteau had in five — one. Not an exciting output, but Parenteau has gone on to do quite a bit more in the NHL than Droppa did.

Parenteau is a seemingly-constant target for the Blackhawks anymore, as a role player. But he’s never returned to Chicago, instead posting 268 points in 424 regular-season games between five other NHL teams.

No. 59: RW Sergei Krivokrasov (1992-93)

Did you know Travis Moen and Rob Klinkhammer — both still NHLers — played for the Blackhawks under this number? Neither had as much success or time with the team as Krivokasov, though the Russian mostly played for Chicago with No. 25.

Krivokrasov showed up right after the 1992 Stanley Cup run and spent four full seasons and parts of two others in Chicago. He posted 83 points in 225 regular-season games and added a whopping no points in 21 postseason tilts.
