20 Corey Crawford
Drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks in the second round of the 2003 draft, Corey Crawford has always been a Blackhawk. While Crow might be on his way to New Jersey to start a new era in his career, what he brought to the Blackhawks will always be remembered.
Crawford worked to get the Blackhawks net after getting drafted until he became the starter in the 2010-11 season at the age of 26. It has been 10 years since then, and Crawford has brought the Blackhawks two Stanley Cups and has led a horrible defensive team for the past few years.
While the Blackhawks were always amazing offensively during their championships, it was Crawford that was the calming presence on the ice when Chicago always knew they could count on him for a big save.
19 Al Secord
Al Secord was drafted by the Boston Bruins in the 1978 NHL draft. Secord then found himself in Chicago a few years later at the age of 22. Over the course of eight years in Chicago, Al Secord would play in 466 games with the Blackhawks, where he would put up 213 goals and 373 points for the team.
Secord was one of my Dad’s favorite players of all time. I just wish he could have won a championship with the team.
