Blackhawks Top 11 All Time Points

#2 Bobby Hull

#2 All Time Points Leader, Blackhawks All Time Points

Not very often do you have 2 brothers in the top 6 all time scoring for a franchise but Bobby and Dennis clearly aren’t 2 normal hockey playing brothers! Bobby began his career with the Blackhawks in 1957 and amazingly only missed the playoffs 3 times in the NHL and twice while with the Jets when they were with in the WHA. Hull played with the Blackhawks until the 71-72 season, competing in 1036 games scoring 604 goals and 549 assists. With a point total of 1153 Bobby Hull averaged 1.11 goals a game!

On March 12, 1966, he became the first NHL player to score more than 50 goals in a season, surpassing Maurice Richard’s and Bernie Geoffrion’s hallowed mark of 50 goals. His 51st goal against the New York Rangers earned him a seven-minute standing ovation from the Chicago Stadium faithful. **

He was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1983 and in 1978 his jersey was retired in both Chicago and Winnipeg.
