It’s time for another fun round of Chicago Blackhawks Trivia!! Among the topics we are hitting this time, we will focus on some former players celebrating birthdays this week. So, let’s cross off another week closer to the start of training camp by learning a bit about the Blackhawks’ storied past.

I will ask you 10 questions about the storied past of our favorite hockey team. The game will be broken down into four segments. The first period will feature three easy questions to get warmed up. The second period will have three questions that will be more challenging. The third period will have three hard questions before we wrap up with one overtime question for the diehards.

Let’s see how you do!

First Period (Easy)

1. Born on Aug. 15, 2000, defenseman Adam Boqvist was selected by the Blackhawks with what overall pick of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft?

2. What head coach led the Blackhawks to the 1992 Stanley Cup Final?

3. Who holds the franchise record with 131 points in a season?

Second Period (Medium)

1. Troy Brouwer, born Aug. 17, 1985, was traded to the Washington Capitals for a first-round draft pick in 2011. What current member of the Los Angeles Kings did the Blackhawks select with that pick?

2. Chico Maki, born on Aug. 17, 1939, played what position during his career with the Blackhawks?

3. What Blackhawks defenseman won the Norris Trophy three straight years?

Third Period (Hard)

1. The Blackhawks have drafted third overall six times in franchise history. The first was Terry Caffery in 1966, and the most recent was Kirby Dach in 2019. Who are the other four players the Blackhawks drafted third overall, including one player born on Aug. 16, 1966?

2. Of the 32 current NHL head coaches, three have played at least one game for the Blackhawks. Name all three.

3. On Aug. 16, 1996, Jeremy Roenick was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes for Alexei Zhamnov, a first-round draft pick and what player?

Overtime (Diehard)

On March 23, 1952, Bill Mosienko set the NHL record for the fastest hat trick. How fast did it take Mosienko to score three goals?


First Period

1. Eighth overall. The Swedish-born blueliner made his NHL debut with the Blackhawks in 2019. He had six goals and 29 points in 76 games before being part of the 2021 trade with the Columbus Blue Jackets that brought Seth Jones to Chicago.

2. Mike Keenan. This was the Blackhawks’ first trip to the Stanley Cup Final since 1973, but the Pittsburgh Penguins swept them. They would not return until 2010. Keenan won the Stanley Cup with the New York Rangers two years later in 1994.

3. Denis Savard. He set the record during the 1987-88 season, breaking his previous record of 121 points set in 1982-81. He has the four highest-scoring seasons in Blackhawks history.

Second Period

1. Phillip Danault. The talented center played 32 games for the Blackhawks before he was traded with a second-round pick, in 2016, to the Montreal Canadiens for Tomas Fleischmann and Dale Weise. History has not looked upon this trade kindly.

2. Right wing. Maki played 841 games over his 14 seasons in Chicago and was a member of the 1961 Stanley Cup Championship team. He scored 143 goals and 436 points while finishing his career as a plus-144.

3. Pierre Pilote. The Hall of Famer took home the award for being the NHL’s best defenseman in 1963, 1964, and 1965.

Third Period

1. Denis Savard (1980), Eddie Olczyk (1983), Cam Barker (2004), and Jonathan Toews (2006)

2. Ryan Huska (Calgary Flames), Andrew Brunette (Nashville Predators), and Bruce Cassidy (Vegas Golden Knights). Huska’s lone NHL game came with the Blackhawks during the 1997-98 season. Brunette’s 16th and final season was with Chicago in 2011-12. He had 12 goals and 27 points in 78 games. Cassidy, a good friend of Luke Richardson, was drafted by the Blackhawks in the first round of the 1983 NHL Entry Draft, 15 picks after Olczyk. He played 36 games over six seasons, scoring four goals and 17 points.

3. Craig Mills. The right wing played 27 games over two seasons for the Blackhawks and had three assists. He was traded back to the Coyotes for cash on Sept. 11, 1999. Mills was later traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Robert Reichel, the uncle of Blackhawks’ forward Lukas Reichel.


21 seconds. Mosienko’s record-setting hat trick helped the Blackhawks beat the New York Rangers 7-6, and the mark still stands today.
