4. Corey Crawford

Corey Crawford has won the most Stanley Cups as a Blackhawks’ goalie in team history. I know they’ve only won six Stanley Cups, that’s still really good. Any goalie that can win multiple Stanley Cups has to be great.

Throughout Crawford’s career, he’s been underestimated. In most of the playoff series he won, he was considered the worse of the two goalies. He never really got the respect he earned, outside of Chicago.

Crawford has played all of his NHL with the Blackhawks. He’s played the third-most games in Blackhawks’ history. Crawford is 257-160-53. He has a good chance of catching up to second place in most wins in team history (276).

Not only has Crawford won two Stanley Cups, but he also has been an All-Star twice, along with two Jennings Trophies.

Before his concussion in 2017, Crawford was one of the best goalies in the league. He was 16-9-2 that season. If he didn’t get hurt, the Blackhawks might have made the playoffs. We’ll never know.

Since the injury, Crawford hasn’t been the same player. He has some great games and great moments, but overall, he isn’t the same guy. Age has caught up with him, so I don’t see him going any higher in this list. He’s still had an amazing career and when he hangs up the skates, he will be apart of the NHL Hall of Fame.
