The Chicago Blackhawks were granted to the city of Chicago in 1926 by the National Hockey League, the team entered the league alongside the present-day Detroit Red Wings and New York Rangers. The name “Blackhawks” was created by owner Fredrick McLaughlin in honor of his Blackhawk division that he commanded during World War I. Interested in promoting American born hockey players, the Chicago Blackhawks became the first team in the league to have an all-American born lineup-a feat very rare in the sport then.
Starting play in the 1926-1927 season, the Blackhawks had to prove themselves early in the league. They finished their first season in third place and they even qualified for their first playoff appearance, only to be eliminated by the Boston Bruins in the first round. After a few years of turmoil, the Blackhawks reached their first Stanley Cup Final in 1931 but were quickly eliminated by the Montreal Canadiens. In the 1933-1934 season the Chicago Blackhawks brought home their first Stanley Cup title against the Detroit Red Wings. After barely qualifying for the playoffs in 1938, the Blackhawks stunned many and brought home their second Stanley Cup after defeating the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Blackhawks secured their third Stanley Cup in 1961 against the Detroit Red Wings, a victory that marked the beginning of a downward spiral for the team.
The Chicago Blackhawks have won the Stanley Cup six times since their founding in 1926. Before taking home the 2010 Stanley Cup championship, the Chicago Blackhawks suffered the second longest cup drought in NHL history, right behind the Toronto Maple Leafs. Lasting 49 years, it finally ended with a sudden death overtime goal from Patrick Kane that gave them the advantage over the Philadelphia Flyers in game six of the series. Since then, the Blackhawks have won the Stanley Cup in 2013 and 2015.
