The Chicago Blackhawks and their history begins back in 1926, when they joined NHL and are one of the "Original Six" franchises. They gained their moniker from the original owner Frederic McLaughlin, who had once served as a commander of a U.S. Army division nicknamed the "Blackhawk Division." According to the team's official Web site, McLaughlin felt it was a fitting name for his new professional hockey franchise.
Over the course of the team history, the Blackhawks have won five Stanley Cups, the first coming in 1934. Most recently the Blackhawks have won two titles in four years, in 2010 and 2013.
Like any franchise with a great history, the Blackhawks and their fans have seen some of the all-time great players take to the ice. Two of the best were goalies, Glenn Hall and Tony Esposito, both of whom have had their numbers retired by the team. Other greats that have seen their jerseys retired to the rafters: Bobby Hull (#9), Denis Savard (#18), Stan Mikita (#21), as well as Pierre Pilote and Keith Magnuson who shared the #3.
