The ’12-’13 Chicago Blackhawks were the 6th seed in the inaugural Ultimate NHL Playoff. They had a bye in the First Round before they swept the 27th-seeded ’79-’80 Minnesota North Stars in the Second Round. Then, in the Third Round, they defeated the 11th-seeded ’96-’97 New Jersey Devils in six games after losing the first two games, but their tournament came to an end in the Quarterfinal Round. They were defeated by the eventual runners up, the 19th-seeded ’88-’89 Calgary Flames, in five games.

Players to Watch:

  • F – Stan Mikita – Chicago’s all-time leading scorer with 1,467 points in 1,394 games played. He’s also first in assists with 926 and second in goals with 541.
  • LW – Bobby Hull – The only guy to score more goals as in a Chicago uniform than Mikita with 604 goals. He’s second in points with 1,153 in 1,036 games.
  • RW – Patrick Kane – Arguably the most electrifying talent in the league today. Of course, he has had a share of bad press lately.
