throwback thursday

Chicago goaltender Glenn Hall defends the net against the New York Rangers and the Toronto Maple Leafs in this series of undated photos. With Pierre Pilote, Stan Mikita and Bobby Hull — who appears in the top left and bottom right photos — Hall helped lead Chicago to its 1960-1961 Stanley Cup victory, playing in all 70 regular-season games and all 12 playoff games along the way. In fact, Hall currently holds the NHL record for consecutive games played with 503, 363 of which came during his decade-long tenure in Chicago (1957-1967), when the team was still known as the Black Hawks. For the entirety of that streak, Hall eschewed a protective facemask in favor of going bare-faced, although he did don the equipment later in his career. "To me, Glenn was the best goaltender of his generation, and maybe the best ever," Mikita told Blackhawks Magazine. "Without Glenn Hall, our teams wouldn't have gone anywhere." His No. 1 jersey now hangs in the rafters of the United Center, having been retired on Nov. 20, 1988, at the Chicago Stadium.
