Blackhawks Retiring Marian Hossa’s No. 81

Before Thursday’s game, Marian Hossa signed a one-day contract and officially retired as a member of the Chicago Blackhawks.

During the first period against Seattle, the Blackhawks announced that Hossa’s number was also retiring.

As in, no Blackhawks skater will ever wear 81 again.

Hossa spent eight years with the Chicago Blackhawks, appearing in 534 games in the Indian head — both the most of his Hall of Fame career. He scored 186 of his 525 career goals with the Hawks and was at the core of three Stanley Cup championship teams. We’ll say it a million times: Marian Hossa is the greatest free agent signing by any professional team in Chicago history.

He will join the following Blackhawks legends in the rafters:

  • 1- Glenn Hall
  • 3 – Pierre Pilote, Keith Magnuson
  • 9 – Bobby Hull
  • 18 – Denis Savard
  • 21 – Stan Mikita
  • 35 – Tony Esposito
  • 81 – Marian Hossa

    To bad they didn’t insert him in the lineup tonight. I would take a one legged Hossa over half of this damn team. Congratulations Hoss you earned it.

    Well deserved, wonder what his role with the organization will be when announced.

    Love it.

    But 28 needs to be up there, too.

    We’ll deserved, but the fact that Larms isn’t up there is disappointing.

    Larmer must have really pissed off some one in the Wirtz family because he deserves way better than what he’s got. One of the all time Hawks players.
