#35 — Tony Esposito
Tony Esposito is an icon amongst Blackhawks fans. When he took his one more shift opportunity last year, fans jumped on the opportunity to honor the Chicago Blackhawks’ legend.
Esposito played with the Blackhawks from 1969-1984, most of his NHL career. Esposito has played the most games in Blackhawks’ history by a goalie (873), and unless Corey Crawford plays in another 430 games, that record will stand.
To put that into perspective, the top goalies of today’s time, Henrik Lundquist and Carey Price, have played in 857 games and 624 games respectively. That is the type of class Esposito is in.
Tony Esposito made some incredible saves during his time with the Blackhawks. Check out some of his best highlight-reel saves below.
These are all of the numbers the Chicago Blackhawks have retired thus far. However, considering the team has won 3 championships since 2010, could they possibly add some more names to that list?
