History Of The Chicago Blackhawks
The Chicago Blackhawks joined the NHL in 1926 as part of the first wave of expansion into the United States. They were joined by the Detroit Cougars, who later became the Detroit Red Wings, and the New York Rangers and are often referred to as one of the ‘Original Six’ NHL teams (Chicago, Detroit, New York, Montreal, Toronto and Boston).
The franchise was originally awarded May 1, 1926 to a group headed by Huntington Hardwick of Boston. Hardwick was a former football star at the time and although had plans to purchase players from a WHL team, he and his group ended up selling the team in June 1926 to Chicago coffee tycoon Frederic McLaughlin. The new team owner named the team in honor of his personal military history. He had been the Commander of the 333rd Machine Gun Battalion of the 86th Infantry Division in the Second World War. Chief Blackhawk, who played a significant part in the history of the State of Illinois, was who McLaughlin’s ‘Blackhawk Division’ was named after and when he formed the hockey team the name was used to identify it. With McLaughlin in the head office, the Blackhawks became the first NHL team to feature a starting lineup comprised of just American-born players.
The team colors are red, black and white and the team plays in the Central Division of the Western Conference.
Top players who have worn the Blackhawks’ uniform include Keith Magnuson (1969-1980), Ed Belfour (1988-1997), Jeremy Roenick (1988-1996), Pierre Pilote (1955-1968), Jonathan Toews (2007-present), Tony Esposito (1969-1984), Chris Chelios (1990-1999), Denis Savard (1980-1997), Stan Makita (1958-1980) and Bobby Hull (1957-1972).
The Chicago Blackhawks have won 6 Stanley Cups (1933-1934, 1937-1938, 1960-1961, 2009-2010, 2012-2013, 2014-2015), 3 Conference Championships, 2 Presidents’ Trophies (1990-1991, 2012-2013) and 15 Division Championships. Chicago also appeared in the second Winter Classic (2009) losing 6-4 to Detroit Red Wings.
