Chicago Blackhawks Team Information

NHL Chicago Blackhawks Team Information

The Chicago Blackhawks were formed in September of 1926. Major Frederic McLaughlin invested $200,000 to purchase the Portland Rosebuds of the Western Hockey League. The WHL teams were unable to compete with the higher paid NHL. The Chicago Blawkhawks are considered one of the original six NHL teams. .


In 1928 the Blackhawks moved from the Coliseum to the newly built 18,000 seat Chicago Statdium - the biggest NHL areana at that time. The club was in some financial trouble when in 1952 a group comprising of Jim Norris Sr. and Jr, along with Arthur Wirtz joined together to purchase the franchise.. In 1954, Bill Wirtz joined with his father and brother.

One of the moist famous incidents was in the early 1970's when superstar Bobby Hull up against the Wirtz family in a salary dispute, left the Blackhawks and the NHL for the newly organized World Hockey Association (WHA).
