The team that started it all, the 1926 Chicago Black Hawks (spelled Blackhawks after 1986). One of the Original Six NHL teams, the Blackhawks are now truly a sports dynasty with six total Stanley Cup wins, 3 occurring within the last 6 years.
Blackhawks TV Season One: Episode 1 This is the first of five episodes from the Blackhawks TV Season One (2009-2010) DVD.
So I cleaned the fuck out of my room the other day and found my old Blackhawks DVDs. I decided to rip them and throw them on YouTube for you guys.
The following videos are from the Blackhawks TV Season One (2009-2010) DVD. These aired on CSN Chicago, WGN, and/or NBC 5 in Chicago during the 2009-10 season. I know the individual videos are on the BHTV YouTube channel, but the full episodes aren’t anywhere on the web, as far as I know.
During last night’s intense, record breaking play-time, triple overtime playoff game against Anaheim, I turned to the spouse after Andrew Shaw’s disallowed head butt goal and jokingly commented, “now that’s a hat-trick!”
I was then reminded that the origins of the term hat-trick (three goals scored by a single player in one game), actually originate with the Blackhawks.
As the legend goes, ‘Hawks forward, Alex “Killer” Kaleta, before a game against Toronto in 1946, walked into a Toronto haberdashery with the intent to buy a hat. As he was just back from serving in the war, he was short on funds and was unable to afford the one he had selected. The shop owner, Sammy Taft, made a deal with Kaleta, telling him that if he made three goals against the Maple Leafs that night, he would give him the hat for free. Kaleta would go on to cash in on Taft’s offer, scoring four.
Though there are many different accounts on the origins of the term hat-trick, this seems to be the most supported, evidenced by news stories from that night in January of 1946. This is also the only official account recognized by the NHL.
