I finally got into the craze that is Puckdoku and I’m officially hooked. Not only am I going to try and build my own knowledge up even more, I’m likely turning this into a daily thing. Why not–a little education never hurts. Of course, for Chicago Hockey Now’s purposes, we’ll keep things we’ll center it around Chicago Blackhawks.
Finally gave Puckdoku a try. Hooked.
Next 30 days I'll give different #Blackhawks ones that might fall under 5%. Let's see if I can keep the streak alive.
We'll start with Goalie Denis DeJordy (with Chicago 1962-1970). Played for LA, MTL, DET

Here are a couple Blackhawks – one forward and one defenseman along with the goalie in the Tweet. The goal is to combine it so there are numerous amounts of options amongst the three without teams intersecting. For example, DeJordy played for three other teams, Krivokrasov four, and Coffey eight (six not already used).
The goalie is in the Tweet, Denis DeJordy who was a Vezina winner during the 1966-1967 season.
Blackhawks Defenseman – Paul Coffey
So Coffey seemed to have played on every team in the NHL by the time he had a one-year stopover with the Blackhawks. A member of the powerful Edmonton Oilers of the 80’s, Coffey went to Pittsburgh and collected one more Cup to add to his three with the Oilers. From there, he had stops in LA, Detroit, Hartford, Philadelphia, Carolina and finally Boston before he was done.
Blackhawks Forward – Sergei Krivokrasov
Before Patrick Kane potted a game winning overtime goal back in 2009, it was Krivokrasov who held that honor. During the 1997 Western Conference quarterfinal against the Colorado Avalanche, he buried the game-winner in double overtime of Game 3. He would be gone a couple seasons later, but he’s a good one to have because he still played for four other franchises.
Blackhawks – 1992-1998; Nashville; Calgary; Minnesota; Anaheim (Mighty Ducks)
Bonus Stat – Blackhawks 50 Goal Scorers
Yesterday’s looked at players with 50 assists–how about Blackhawks player who netted 50 in a single season? There have only been three:
- Bobby Hull – 5 times (1961-62; 1965-66; 1966-67; 1968-69; 1971-72)
- Al Secord (1982-83)
- Jeremy Roenick – (1992-93)
Suggestions? Send them along. In the meantime, it’s a fun little way to bring back some Blackhawks you might have forgotten about or potentially learn about some you might not have known.
