Founded as part of the Original Six teams in 1926, the Chicago Blackhawks are one of the most well known and highly valued teams in the league. Wearing red, white, and black, the Blackhawks play as part of the Western Conference and Central Division, where they have won six Stanley Cups, four Conference Championships, two President’s Trophies, and an incredible sixteen Division Championships.
This dominating team hails from Chicago, Illinois, where they play from the United Center. In a stylistic choice, the team changed from their original name of the Chicago Black Hawks to the Chicago Blackhawks in 1986. The original spelling had been with the team since their founding in 1926 and, amazingly, they have remained within Chicago for the entirety of their almost century long-standing as a hockey club. The logo of the team is a Native American face turned to the side. It has been the source of a lot of controversies, with many Native American tribes having conflicting opinions. Many are uncomfortable with the depiction, as it can come off as disrespectful. The team has made efforts to educate on Native American culture and regularly donate to Native causes but have not changed the team name or logo and have not indicated any desire to do so.
The mascot, Tommy Hawk, is a black hawk who was inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame in 2019. The team has retired six numbers in honor of Glenn Hall, Keith Magnuson, Pierre Pilote, Bobby Hull, Denis Savard, Stan Mikita, and Tony Esposito. They also have ties to thirty-nine Hall of Famers and ten Hall of Fame Builders.
