WATCH: Blackhawks Honor Stan Mikita Before Home Opener

Before Sunday night’s home opener for the Blackhawks – appropriately with another Original Six franchise, the Toronto Maple Leafs, in town – Chicago honored the greatest player to ever wear the Indian head sweater.

RIP Stosh.

  1. Amazing tribute to one of hockey’s greatest. I can still remember watching Stosh center the Scooter line – with Doug Mohns and Kenny Wharrem – on my 13-inch black and white TV with Lloyd Pettit calling the action on WGN back in the Original Six days. RIP 21

  2. Kudos to Hawks organization for outstanding tribute to a real legend – 21 years for 21! Wow- and such an ambassador for rest of his life! I hope 19 & 88 get to that station in life, 50 years from now! Sorry I won’t be around to see that- but I have seen them win 4 Stanley Cups!
    Proud time to be a Hawks fan

  3. I certainly got all teared up watching the Stosh tribute last night. Stan was a class act on and off the ice. The Hawks are very good at putting on these presentations. They certainly had plenty of material to work with for Mikita. Pity a recording of Lloyd calling a “shot from Mikita and a GOAL” wasn’t included. What a pleasure it was for me to watch Mikita play when I was a kid. He and Bobby were amazing . Speaking of Bobby, he didn’t look at all healthy last night, and it seemed as though it was all he could do to just stand up.

    Yes indeed GH61, last night was another reason to be a proud Hawks fan!

    Lets Go Hawks!
