When hockey collectors discuss the game’s greatest goalies, there are names that naturally pop up like Terry Sawchuk, Jacques Plante, Patrick Roy, and Martin Brodeur. Their place in hockey history is undeniable, but there is one amazing talent that seems to get lost in the shuffle despite being arguably the best in the game during the 1960s – Glenn Hall.

Why hasn’t the hobby given Hall the respect he rightfully deserves? The answer to that question is rather complex, but perhaps it is time for collectors to elevate his status and consider what the man known as “Mr. Goalie” contributed on the ice and beyond.

A native of Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Hall played for the local club before joining the Ontario Hockey League’s Windsor Spitfires as an 18-year-old in 1949-50. Part of the Detroit Red Wings organization after signing a C-form as a youth, he played in an era where an NHL team owned his rights from an early age. After two seasons in Windsor, he jumped from the junior ranks to the American Hockey League with the Indianapolis Capitols. His 1951-52 campaign was a rough one with 40 losses, but he was still rising within the Red Wings chain – with only Sawchuk standing in his way of a starting role.

Well, the problem at the time was that Sawchuk was firmly entrenched as Detroit’s top man in the crease as the club won three Stanley Cup titles in a four season span between 1951-52 and 1954-55. Hall was called up for his first NHL stint in 1952-53 while Sawchuk was injured, but was sent back down after seven solid games. Sadly, Parkhurst did not make a card of him around this time. It should also be noted that since he was called up to Detroit’s roster for the 1952 Stanley Cup Final, his name was etched onto the Stanley Cup despite not hitting the ice.
Big League Debut

By 1955-56, Hall’s readiness for the NHL could not be denied and the tempermental Sawchuk had been traded to the Boston Bruins. He immediately took over as the team’s starter and blew everyone away with a league-leading 12 shutouts on the way to a spot on the Second All-Star Team and the Calder Trophy as the league’s Rookie of the Year. Appearing in all 70 games, he also kicked off an impressive streak for consecutive appearances that would make hockey history.

The only problem for hockey card-loving kids at the time was the fact that Parkhurst had scaled back to only featuring the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs that year and Topps went on a two-year hiatus. With no hockey cards at all in 1956-57, young fans were despondent and thankfully, both companies were back soon.
Welcome to the Windy City

In those days, Topps hockey card sets were made up of the four American-based clubs and Hall was included – but now as a member of the Chicago Blackhawks (then called the Black Hawks). Why would the Red Wings trade away one of the best young players in the game? Well, that is a bit of a crazy story. Around this time, several players, including Hall’s Red Wings teammate Ted Lindsay, attempted to start a Players’ Association and it was ultimately squashed by team owners.

In the weeks and months that followed, a large portion of the league’s players switched jerseys and Hall was on the move to the Windy City along with Lindsay for four players. The move immediately gave Chicago plenty of leadership and strength in goal – coinciding nicely with the club adding more prospects like Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita, and Ken Wharram.

Since Hall’s rookie card features an airbrushed shot in his new jersey, which is typical for 1957-58 Topps. The original photo with him in a Red Wings uniform was used in the 1993-94 Parkhurst Missing Link series which was an imagining of what the company’s unreleased 1956-57 set might have looked like. Hall’s debut cardboard is one of the most underrated of the decade as it does not seem to get as much love when compared to the rookie card of Plante and is on par with those of Gump Worsley and Johnny Bower in the minds of many collectors. The 1957-58 Topps set is plagued with poor centering as well, making high-grade copies incredibly difficult to find.

Hall’s first season with Chicago was rough as he lost 39 times, but he was rewarded with a spot on the NHL’s First All-Star Team. The team returned to the playoffs in 1958-59 and he was at his best two years later as the club captured its first Stanley Cup crown since 1937-38. He played a crucial part in getting the team past the Montreal Canadiens in the first round – a remarkable feat as the Habs had won a record five straight titles. Facing Gordie Howe and many of his former Red Wings teammates in the Stanley Cup Final, he prevailed in a high-scoring six-game affair.
Influencer

For the next six seasons, Hall was arguably the most consistent and influential goalie in the game. Young goalies everywhere were emulating his style thanks to national television broadcasts of NHL games and he was featured in more than just hockey cards. Naturally, his Shirriff hockey coins were coveted, but there were also Beehive photos and El Producto discs that were certainly playing a key role in schoolyard trades.

When it comes to Hall’s regular issue cards during the Black Hawks years, there is one that truly stands out. The 1964-65 Topps card shows him holding a mask – and this appears to be the first time that type of protection appeared on a hockey card. However, this mask looks to be something he wore in practice as he never wore one in action until a few years later. The 1961-62 Topps action card called Bathgate Bangs One In also shows Hall, but he is being scored on by fellow superstar Andy Bathgate.

During Hall’s tenure with Chicago, he set an impossible-to-break record as he appeared in his 502nd consecutive game early in 1962-63. The notoriously nervous netminder, who threw up before every game due to nerves, soldiered on through the 1960s and regularly protected the net during the NHL All-Star Game. He appeared in that event on 13 occasions – more than any other goalie ever. He regularly led his peers in shutouts and even though save percentage was not an official stat during this era, historical records show that he was tops in that department in 1956-57 and 1962-63 – the latter being the first year that he won the Vezina Trophy.

Before 1981-82, the Vezina was handed out to the goalie or tandem that had the lowest goals-against average in the league. He went to the Stanley Cup Final again in 1962 (vs. Toronto) and 1965 (vs. Montreal), but the game was starting to change by the middle of the decade as tandems began to be implemented by teams.

In Chicago, Hall’s partner in net was Denis DeJordy and the duo helped the Black Hawks to their first regular season crown in 1966-67. At the time, there was a claim that the club’s original coach, Pete Muldoon, had put a curse on the club after being fired following their inaugural campaign on 1926-27. A total fabrication, it at least made for a good story and the duo went home with the Vezina.
Singing the Blues

With the Original Six era ending and the NHL expanding to 12 teams, the new clubs were able to select unprotected players from the rosters of established clubs. Perhaps feeling that Hall was in his twilight, he was exposed in the expansion draft and was scooped up by the St. Louis Blues.

Even though he was not ready to call it quits, Hall had a history of holding out at the beginning of the season in order to secure a better contract from his team and have some time to paint his barn. He did get the Blues to agree to a deal soon after the 1967-68 season began and he shared the crease with former Team Canada star Seth Martin. It should be noted that Martin also made fiberglass masks for his fellow goalies and Hall was happy to be one of his customers once he decided to start wearing one regularly on the ice.

The 1967-68 Topps set, though, did not feature expansion teams – likely due to timing and a lack of available photos. This meant that Hall would not get a basic card, but he was paired up with DeJordy on a Vezina Trophy winners card and was in the All-Star Team subset.

Despite a losing record that year, he was counted upon to take the club far into the playoffs. St. Louis eliminated the first place Philadelphia Flyers and the Minnesota North Stars before battling the Canadiens for Lord Stanley’s Mug. Hall was brilliant in this series, keeping each contest within one goal despite being swept in four games. He was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as postseason MVP.

Heading into 1968-69, the Blues lured Hall’s longtime rival, Plante, out of retirement and created one of the greatest tandems in hockey history. Despite having radically different personalities and the fact that Plante often alienated himself from teammates, the pair gave up just 157 goals on the way to finishing first in the West Division and winning the Vezina. Plante took the lead in the playoffs and they were swept once again by the Canadiens in the Stanley Cup Final and he chose to retire.

Eventually returning to action in 1969-70, the duo were runners-up in the Vezina race, but another first-place finish was in the books. For the second straight season, Hall’s cards in the O-Pee-Chee sets used older photos from his Black Hawks days, but there is a fantastic Vezina Trophy Winners subset card which placed him and Plante together. Due to injuries, Hall was limited to 18 games and Ernie Wakely came in to help the cause. By the playoffs, the trio was dividing up the appearances and Hall put together a 4-3 record. He was in goal for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final and was immortalized as part of the game’s most famous photograph as Bobby Orr was tripped up while scoring the championship goal in overtime.

Hall returned for one last season in 1970-71 and that year’s O-Pee-Chee set finally used a shot of him in a Blues uniform. It would prove to be the last card of his playing days. He went 13-11-8 over 32 games with a decent 2.42 goals-against average. In the playoffs, he went winless in three appearances against Minnesota and his playing days came to an end.

All told, Hall retired with an impressive 407 wins and 84 shutouts. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1975 and was one of the NHL’s earliest goalie coaches. No other netminder was named to the NHL’s First All-Star Team on more occasions and his pioneering use of the butterfly style of goaltending helped revolutionize the game.
Modern Collectibles

When it comes to collectibles, Hall’s vintage cards reign supreme and remain popular with team collectors and set builders. His rookie card is certainly unheralded when compared to some of his peers and has room for growth in the coming years. When it comes to modern issues, he was part of the Parkhurst Missing Link sets from 1933-94 to 1995-96 and Upper Deck’s Retro and Century Legends releases in 1999-00, but it started to get wild in 2001-02. Finally signing for trading card products, it is not tremendously difficult to get a certified autograph of Hall, who recently turned 88. In The Game unleashed plenty of game-used memorabilia cards featuring his equipment, including a St. Louis Blues jersey, Blackhawks jersey,sticks, and even a glove.

CHICAGO, IL — The Chicago Blackhawks are, arguably, the team of the decade.

Three Stanley Cup championships.

Patrick Kane will lead the NHL in points during the decade and won the Hart and Ross Trophies in 2016. Duncan Keith won two Norris Trophies. Jonathan Toews won the Mark Messier Award and Selke Trophy. All three of them have a Conn Smythe on their Hall of Fame resumes.

Those three and Marian Hossa built Hall of Fame resumes in Chicago over the past 10 years. Corey Crawford has been terrific, as well, manning the crease for the Hawks in two of the three championships.

The sun appears to be fading on the golden age of Blackhawks hockey, however.

This season has been marked by impressive highs and remarkable lows, all connected by frustratingly inconsistent play and questionable roster decisions by Jeremy Colliton, the young head coach who was given the unenviable task of replacing future Hall of Famer Joel Quenneville last year.

There are still glimpses of the possible, like Chicago’s overtime win in Boston on Dec. 5. In the middle of November there appeared to be hope. The roster was getting healthy and Chicago rattled off four straight wins against the Leafs, Knights, Preds and Sabres. The Hawks outscored those four opponents 21-10 during an impressive seven-day stretch of play.

Including the Boston win, the Blackhawks are 4-9-2 in 15 games since beating Buffalo on Nov. 17.

Injuries could certainly be used as an easy excuse. Keith and Andrew Shaw have missed extended time (Shaw is still out in concussion protocol) and Calvin de Haan re-injured the right shoulder that required surgery in the spring. Olli Maatta and Drake Cagguila have also missed time because of health issues.

But making – or rather accepting – excuses isn’t how this Blackhawks core has ever done business. Indeed, Chicago’s rival in St. Louis is not only the defending Stanley Cup Champions but they haven’t missed a beat despite being without Vladimir Tarasenko most of the season.

Chicago’s dysfunction may have (finally) hit a tipping point on Wednesday night.

With Keith coming back from a groin injury, Colliton opted to dress rookies Adam Boqvist and Dennis Gilbert and make veteran Brent Seabrook a healthy scratch against a Colorado team that has become emblematic of how the Central Division is passing the Blackhawks. Since Thanksgiving, the Blackhawks have lost three times to the Avs (including Wednesday) by a combined score of 16-6.

After the game, Keith let the media know how he felt about the team’s effort and Seabrook being a scratch. Keith was outspoken with his appreciation of Gilbert’s physical play in preseason action and noted that he liked what Boqvist brings to the table, but the tough reality is that Chicago simply doesn’t have enough seats at the table for all of the players they’re paying.

Colliton’s personality and approach are vastly different than Quenneville’s. Add to that the recent investigation into allegations against assistant Marc Crawford from his past that led to a suspension by the team and even the coaching staff has been a mess. The veteran players have not responded to Colliton’s approach, and Keith is not the first player to take issue with decisions openly.

Which brings us to the million-dollar questions: what is wrong with the Blackhawks? And who do we blame for the issues that have plagued them for three seasons?

The issues begin in the front office. Chicago’s prospect pipeline that once replenished a post-Cup exodus in 2010 into two more championships has dried up, and veteran additions haven’t worked out far too often.

Trading away talented young players has been a significant issue for Stan Bowman’s regime and has hurt the team’s ability to compete over the past three years.

Between 2015-19, the Blackhawks have had 39 draft picks. Only six have appeared in an NHL game, and two of those six are no longer with the organization.

Of the nine first-round picks the Blackhawks have used in the decade, only two – Boqvist and Kirby Dach, last summer’s third-overall selection – are still with the Blackhawks. Among the seven first rounders no longer with the Blackhawks, six players have been traded away for varying levels of return. Kevin Hayes, Chicago’s first-round pick in 2010, opted to sign elsewhere after his collegiate career ended.

The six first-round picks traded away: Mark McNeil, Phillip Danault, Teuvo Teravainen, Ryan Hartman, Nick Schmaltz and Henri Jokiharju.

Danault has become a terrific contributor for Montreal, Teravainen is one of Carolina’s most dangerous forwards, Schmaltz is doing a nice job for a resurgent Arizona team and Jokiharju is averaging almost 17 minutes per night for the Sabres this season.

Amplifying the Blackhawks limited success in the draft and poor trades of prospects before they reach their potential has been Bowman’s obsession with lottery tickets and veteran bandaids.

Bowman loves to take chances on young players who haven’t reached their pre-draft ceiling. He did well with Dylan Strome (acquired for Schmaltz last year). But others, like Alex Nylander (acquired for Jokiharju earlier this year) haven’t worked.

To balance (and, in many cases, block) the young possibilities, Bowman has annually brought in veterans. Ryan Carpenter has been very good in his role with this year’s Blackhawks team, but others like Zack Smith have struggled to find consistency. Meanwhile, prospects like Dylan Sikura and Matthew Highmore spent parts of the first half in the AHL because the seats on the NHL roster are all full.

Which brings us to the ultimate issue in Chicago: cap management.

Bowman has done a good job of adding quality depth to the organization on the blueline in recent years. Boqvist and Gilbert are the first in a wave of prospects coming that should give Chicago the opportunity to turn over the roster on the back end.

Ian Mitchell, Alex Vlasic, Alec Regula, Nicolas Beaudin and Lucas Carlsson have all received solid reviews from scouts. Mitchell (U. of Denver) and Vlasic (Boston U.) are playing in the NCAA while Regula, acquired from Detroit this fall for Brendan Perlini, is skating with the London Knights.

The elephant in the room is if/when these young players will be able to join the NHL roster.

Keith and Seabrook have NMCs and are signed through 2022 and 2023, respectively. Maatta and Connor Murphy have two more years left on their contracts after the current season, as well. And both Boqvist and Gilbert are showing they belong in the NHL right now as rookies. The NHL roster is, in theory, full until the 2022-23 season.

Maybe Seattle can save the day and take a defenseman in the expansion draft?

The discussion comes back to the totality of the organization losing more than they’ve won over the past five years. They’ve lost the majority of the trades they’ve made, far too many draft picks have been a swing and a miss, and they have blocked the prospects who might be able to provide cost efficient skill to the roster with veteran acquisitions.

Fans in Chicago are calling for change. Replacing Colliton may be the superficial move many are pointing to as the easiest move to shake things up, and selling veterans to teams with postseason dreams may provide some opportunities down the road. But after two years without postseason hockey, the question now becomes whether or not Bowman is the man to pull the trigger on the changes when they happen.

Dylan Sikura Jersey

The Blackhawks recalled forward Dylan Sikura from the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League, the team announced Sunday morning. In a corresponding move for financial reasons, Anton Wedin was reassigned to Rockford after four games with the Blackhawks.

Sikura leads the IceHogs in goals (nine), points (16) and shots on goal (99) in 22 games this season. He was on a three-game point streak (one goal, two assists) prior to the call-up.

Back in Chicago for the third year — first this season — Sikura is out to prove he can stay for good.

“I think this time around just prove that I can play, I can stay, be an everyday kind of guy up here,” Sikura said. “There’s times last year towards the end of the year where I was proving myself a little bit and I’m excited to get a fresh start and another chance here.”

The biggest challenge for Sikura in the NHL has always been making the most of the minutes he gets at even strength. In college, he played in all situations. In Rockford, he was a top-line player and a key piece to the first power-play unit.

But it’s difficult for him to get those same opportunities in Chicago on a roster with Alex DeBrincat, Patrick Kane, Brandon Saad, Dylan Strome and Jonathan Toews carrying the offensive load.

Sikura has 11 assists in 38 games across two seasons with the Blackhawks, but he’s still searching for his first career NHL goal, which is something that weighed on his mind going into the summer. He takes a lot of pride in contributing on the scoresheet, and he’s hoping the goals come naturally for him this time around.

“Absolutely,” a smiling Sikura said. “I think that’s something that’s important for me. Down there, I get opportunities to score goals and obviously that’s something I’d like to do at this level so hopefully we can put this to rest soon.”

Sunday’s game against the Arizona Coyotes will be Sikura’s third in as many days. He played in Grand Rapids on Friday, Rockford on Saturday, got the call-up after the game and drove to Chicago around midnight.

It’s unclear where he’ll slot into the lineup, but the Blackhawks are pleased with his body of work and felt it was time to give Sikura a shot with the big club.

“I think he showed that he can contribute with us with his pace of play,” head coach Jeremy Colliton said. “I thought his line, when I looked back at him, Toews and Saad [last season], they had a really good stretch where they were driving possession and giving us offensive zone time and that line came through with some production too. He didn’t necessarily score, but he was a part of that.

“Just energy and work ethic, and he has some skill too. But it’s not unlike a lot of young players — just finding a way to do it every single shift every single night. We’re looking for that throughout our lineup, so if he can bring it that’ll help him.”

Brandon Saad Jersey

The Blackhawks have recalled forward John Quenneville from the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League, the team announced Sunday. No corresponding transaction was made because a roster spot opened Saturday after Brandon Saad was placed on injured reserve with a right ankle injury, retroactive to Dec. 19.

The move gives the Blackhawks an extra forward going into Monday’s game against the New Jersey Devils before the NHL’s three-day Christmas break. Saad is eligible to return on Dec. 27, but he’s not expected to return until the new year.

Quenneville has 13 points (eight goals, five assists) in 19 games with the IceHogs this season. His eight goals are tied for third on the team and he’s currently riding a four-game point streak. The 23-year-old forward has appeared in 33 career NHL games across three seasons but has yet to appear in one this season.

Quenneville was drafted by the Devils in the first round (No. 30 overall) of the 2014 NHL Draft and was traded to Chicago last June for forward John Hayden. Quenneville’s season debut could come against his former team on Monday. He is the cousin of former Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville.

Did the Henri Jokiharju for Alexander Nylander trade help or hurt the Chicago Blackhawks?

Now that both the Chicago Blackhawks and Buffalo Sabres have played 30+ games each this season, I think now would be a good time to re-visit and evaluate the controversial Henri Jokiharju-Alexander Nylander trade that happened back on July 9th, 2019.

Back then, the Blackhawks thought having Jokiharju around was a luxury. I’m not exactly sure why they thought he was expendable, especially when you consider the state of the defense at that time.

I don’t think Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook, Erik Gustafsson, Connor Murphy, Henri Jokiharju, Carl Dahlstrom, and Slater Koekkoek sound like much of an NHL caliber defensive unit. Regardless of what I and many Chicago Blackhawks’ fans thought, Stan Bowman felt differently.

When you look at the Blackhawks’ recent trades, trading for a struggling former 1st round pick has sort of become Bowman’s M.O. His recent acquisitions include Dylan Strome, Brendan Perlini, Slater Koekkoek, Olli Maatta, and now, Alexander Nylander.
Alexander Nylander

While Nylander was a standout prospect and has dormant potential, he hasn’t done much since becoming a professional hockey player back in 2016-17. The Sabres’ former 8th overall pick has accumulated an underwhelming 86 points (30G, 56A) in 165 games at the AHL level and now has 17 points (7G, 10A) in 50 games at the NHL level.

This production results in a .52 PPG rate in the AHL and a .34 PPG rate in the NHL. Not exactly the type of numbers you’d expect from a former top-10 draft pick, who also had a solid junior hockey career.

Stan Bowman was hoping to get a Strome-like career resurgence out of Nylander, but it doesn’t look like Stan will strike gold twice in the past two seasons. Here is a closer look at Nylander’s career stats, including the 2019-20 season.

This season, Nylander hasn’t taken advantage of the numerous opportunities he has been given with the Chicago Blackhawks. Jeremy Colliton has slotted him in as the LW on the 1st line more often than not.

According to Dobber’s Frozen Tools, Nylander has lined up alongside Jonathan Toews and Brandon Saad 58.8% of the time in 2019-20 and only has 3 points to show for it. Nylander has also been given power-play time on both the PP1 and PP2 units where he has tallied just 2 points (2A).

Henri Jokiharju

Henri Jokiharju certainly had an interesting rookie season. From the start, former Chicago Blackhawks’ head coach, Joel Quenneville, liked what he saw in Jokiharju. Through the first 15 games under Quenneville, Jokiharju played no less than 18:22 TOI per game and slotted in on the 1st defensive pairing alongside Duncan Keith.

During that time, he also racked up 8 points (8A) with a 1 ± rating in 15 games, which is good for a 19-year-old rookie defenseman. The upside was apparent with Henri Jokiharju. The Blackhawks had a defenseman with top-4 upside, which is what they desperately needed for the past couple of seasons and still need now. The best part is that he was homegrown talent too.

From here on out, things began to unravel for Henri Jokiharju. He was allowed to play for Team Finland in the 2018 World Junior Championship, where he was named an alternate captain and led Finland to a gold medal.

In the tournament, Jokiharju racked up an impressive 5 points (2G, 3A) with a 6 ± rating in 7 games. He returned to play an additional 6 games with the Blackhawks before being assigned to the Rockford IceHogs.

Henri Jokiharju has had a strong 2019-20 campaign with the Buffalo Sabres while playing in a steady top-6 role alongside Marco Scandella. Jokiharju has 10 points (3G, 7A) with a 5 ± rating in 33 games. Jokiharju has also gotten some ice time on the power play where he recorded one goal.

Is There a Clear-Cut Winner In This Trade?

It might be a little early to know for sure, but as of now, I’d have to say the Buffalo Sabres are winning the Alexander Nylander-Henri Jokiharju trade. The Chicago Blackhawks’ defense has been decimated by injuries and disappointing as a whole.

I would prefer to have another defenseman with top-4 upside, in Jokiharju, over another top-9 forward, in Alexander Nylander. The Blackhawks defense likely won’t improve until next season when other defensive prospects such as Ian Mitchell, Nicolas Beaudin, Alec Regula, Alex Vlasic and more have another year under their belts and try to crack the NHL roster.

Blackhawks defenseman Calvin de Haan doesn’t usually drink much coffee.

But as he walked out of the Hawks’ meeting before their game Friday against the Devils, the scent wafting out of his paper cup indicated otherwise.

‘‘It just helps a little bit here and there,’’ de Haan said, laughing. ‘‘Some guys take other stuff, but it just gets me going. I like the taste, even though I don’t drink it that often.’’

De Haan needed all the extra energy he could get in the Hawks’ back-to-back road victories against the Bruins and Devils. Beyond notching his 100th career point with an assist Thursday in Boston — in front of his mom, Kathy, no less — de Haan handled an enormous workload with the Hawks’ defense down two regulars.

He played a season-high 25 minutes, 26 seconds against the Bruins, then followed that with 23:38 against the Devils. The two-game total of 49:04 is the most he has logged in a back-to-back in his career and marked the first time he had played more than 23:30 in consecutive games since March 2014 with the Islanders.

‘‘It doesn’t feel like 25 minutes sometimes,’’ he said. ‘‘But when you look at the stat sheet after the game and you feel a little tired, it does feel like that sometimes. The coaching staff’s given me an opportunity here. I’ve been getting good minutes all season, so it’s really hard to complain. They’ve been putting a lot of trust in me in key times in games, and I just try to be reliable.’’

With Duncan Keith (groin) on injured reserve and Olli Maatta out temporarily with an illness, coach Jeremy Colliton had to use both Slater Koekkoek and Dennis Gilbert in the lineup. He also had to elevate his usual second- and third-pair guys.

De Haan was the biggest beneficiary, but Connor Murphy played more than 22 minutes and Brent Seabrook more than 20 in both games, too.

‘‘Those guys are playing great,’’ goalie Corey Crawford said Friday. ‘‘Blocking shots and doing a lot of the little things you don’t really get to see on the highlight reel the next day, but things that definitely make a difference in getting the puck out quick.’’

The collective effort enabled the Hawks to allow only three even-strength goals in the two games, despite an obvious fatigue factor.

De Haan said preserving energy can’t be on one’s mind during the first leg of a back-to-back, but it’s the top priority as soon as that game ends.

‘‘Everyone has their own routine,’’ he said. ‘‘For the most part, everyone just tries to conserve energy and maybe lay around a bit more.’’

Chicago has been home to many legendary athletes. Where does Patrick Kane rank?

Over the last decade, the Chicago Blackhawks have been one of the most dominant teams in the NHL. As 2019 is nearing the end, many people are talking about who the best athlete in Chicago is.

For the better part of the 2010s, the Chicago Blackhawks have been the best team in Chicago. Long gone are the days of Michael Jordan and his Chicago Bulls. The 2010s were all about the Blackhawks and Patrick Kane.

Kane is currently 31 years old and hasn’t shown any sign of slowing down. His team, of course, has slowed down a bit with aging veterans riding out their last few seasons. Kane just hasn’t.

Patrick Kane will head into 2020 less than 20 points from his 1,000th NHL career point, sitting at 982 right now. Chances are he will hit that before the All-Star break.

The one stat not many people have focused on is this. Kane leads the NHL in points since the start of the 2010s. That is something to be proud of.

Kane is also tied with a few other players for most Stanley Cups this decade. He has had two 100 point seasons, won the Hart Memorial Trophy (MVP), and even added a Conn Smythe Trophy to his name in 2013. Chicago really does run on Kane.

Wonder who has the most points in the NHL for the decade?

Those who have debated who the best player of the decade is and haven’t said, “Patrick Kane”, are wrong. It’s the easiest choice Chicago fans will make.

Now, there are arguments for other players during one season. Having a great one or two seasons is amazing but having a great decade is hard to accomplish.

The Chicago Blackhawks are currently last in the Central Division, and haven’t been great during the last three years, but Kane has remained an elite player. He is a franchise-changing player, and arguably, the best American-born hockey player ever.

The Blackhawks have had many legends throughout the years — too many to count in this one article — but Kane ranks up there with the best. Like the rest of them, he could play in any era and be successful. The fact that he has stayed successful and relevant for many years now shows how much of an impact he had on the city of Chicago.

In the 80s, the city of Chicago was all about the Bears. The 90s were about the Bulls. The 2000s were all about the Bears again. The 2010s were all about the Blackhawks. Kane and teammate Jonathan Toews helped bring relevance to hockey in the Windy City again.

If scoring the game-winning goal to bring the first Stanley Cup back to Chicago in 49-years isn’t enough, winning three Cups in six years should do the trick. The most impressive feat, stat wise, is leading the NHL in points during the last 10 seasons.

Next time you answer the question, the answer is Kane. Any other answer is wrong, because it’s not even close. Other players have been great, but there hasn’t been a player that’s been here for all 10 years and been so dominant. There’s just no other choice.

Dennis Gilbert Jersey

When Blackhawks defenseman Dennis Gilbert skated after Jason Demers, hitting him into the boards, challenging him to fight and beating the doors off him in the second period with Chicago leading 3-2, he was sticking up for a teammate and trying to give the Hawks some life, but it cost them a puck in their own net.

So was it the right move?

“It is if we kill it,” Blackhawks head coach Jeremy Colliton said of the Hawks being forced to kill Gilbert’s instigator penalty. “And I think it sends a good message to the rest of the players that we’re in this together and we’re going to take care of each other.

“But I would have liked us to react better the rest of the game after that and that’s what we should do to protect each other. I thought that the penalty kill, we were looking for goals at times and when we had the chance to get the puck 200 feet down the ice, we didn’t always do that. And I’m not against scoring goals, but let’s be smart about it. It cost us.”

Gilbert was responding to Demers’ hit on Alex DeBrincat in front of the Coyotes’ bench near center ice that caused DeBrincat to fall hard into the wall.

“Well, I think it was [a] pretty blatant [penalty] that was missed,” Hawks defenseman Calvin de Haan said. “Alex’s head went right off the boards. I don’t know how they didn’t call that one. But good on Dennis to step up and sometimes it takes a big set of cajones to do that.

“He tried to get a spark for us and I think trying to stick up for your teammates is still part of the game, especially on a hit like that. Kudos to him and I think it was a key time in the game for us and he tried to turn the tables for us.”

Gilbert received the instigator for going after Demers, which resulted in a Coyotes’ power-play goal from Carl Soderberg. It was Gilbert’s second fight in two games.

“I think it fires us up,” DeBrincat said. “I think he’s protecting me. I think he obviously thought it was a dirty hit and takes control of the play.

“I think it makes a good play for me. I like that he does that. Obviously, at the same time we get a penalty out of it which is not always the best.

“I think our bench can roll with that and try to kill that off. Unfortunately, we didn’t. Any other penalty we can probably kill off from that one.”

Sticking up for a teammate in that fashion goes a long way. The Hawks have been missing a player that makes the opposition answer for their sins the way Gilbert does. You’d like to avoid taking an instigator, but the Blackhawks had an issue with a dangerous hit not being penalized.

It’s up to the penalty kill to make that a good penalty. Unfortunately for Gilbert and company, they didn’t get the job done.

Blackhawks defenseman Calvin de Haan will likely miss four-to-five months with a right shoulder injury, sources tell Scott Powers of The Athletic.

Chicago head coach Jeremy Colliton, however, did not given an official timeline on de Haan’s status during the team’s practice Saturday in St. Louis.

De Haan re-injured his right shoulder in Chicago’s 5-1 loss to the Golden Knights on Tuesday in Las Vegas. He fell on the shoulder after being hit into the glass in the neutral zone by Mark Stone, who was penalized for interference on the play with 2:14 remaining in the first period. De Haan skated off the ice on his own and immediately went to the team’s dressing room.

The Blackhawks placed him on injured reserve Thursday after he underwent further evaluation in Chicago. It’s the same shoulder de Haan had surgery on in the offseason that sidelined him for four-to-six months. He has one goal and five assists in 29 games this season.

Chicago acquired de Haan and forward Aleksi Saarela from the Hurricanes on June 24 in exchange for defenseman Gustav Forsling and goaltender Anton Forsberg. The Blackhawks then traded Saarela to the Panthers on Oct. 23 for defenseman Ian McCoshen. Saarela has no points in three NHL games with Florida, while Forsling, Forsberg and McCoshen have yet to play in the NHL with their respective new team.

De Haan has two years remaining on his four-year contract worth $4,550,00 million per season.

The NHL Department of Player Safety announced Thursday morning Colorado Avalanche defenseman Samuel Girard has been fined $1,957.89, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for boarding Blackhawks winger Alex DeBrincat.

Girard’s hit on DeBrincat came at the 13:47 mark of the third period in Wednesday’s game and went unpenalized, which didn’t sit well with the Blackhawks.

“I didn’t like it, I thought it was boarding,” head coach Jeremy Colliton said following the 4-1 loss to the Avalanche. “It was late and he was in a dangerous spot. Seems like a boarding call to me.”

Erik Gustafsson was slapped with a roughing penalty for going after Girard after the whistle to stick up for his teammate.

“Well what I saw, kind of a late hit,” Gustafsson said. “I felt like they blew the whistle and then he hit him after. That’s what I saw and that’s why I stepped in.”

The Blackhawks and Avalanche will square off for the final time this season on Saturday in Colorado. The money from Girard’s fine goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
