Any Blackhawks fan will tell you just how distinctive the team's logo is, and the rich, long history of Chicago hockey that it represents. Now, The Hockey News' "Post-to-Post" blog has honored the symbol again, rating it the top logo in the NHL.

"We didn’t want history to influence our decisions. The Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens sit outside the top 10 for that reason. Ranking all the Original Six 1-6 is boring, predictable and doesn’t accomplish what we wanted to do here: reward the best logos, not the longest history," writes THN's Rory Boylen. "Even still, the Chicago Blackhawks stood up to that measurement. The vibrant color combination and the respectful way it honors a WWI battalion and a Native American chief sets this logo apart from the rest. If we handed out the Three Stars of these logo rankings, the Blackhawks logo would be one, two and three."

Remember this?

#CaptainSelfie was born on July 18, 2014, when Jonathan Toews took a photo of himself—and a few thousand Blackhawks fans in attendance—at the opening ceremonies of the Blackhawks Convention. But he wasn't the only one: Blackawks Magazine asked the rest of the team to follow the captain's lead and show off their selfie skills.

The results were predictably mixed, as you can see below in our preview. All of the "selfie"-portaits will be published as part of the 2014-15 season's Blackhawks Magazine player profiles, so be sure to pick up a copy at any Blackhawks home game or at the Blackhawks Store on Michigan Avenue.

Brad Richards, the newest addition to the team, got a rousing welcome from Blackhawks fans at the Convention. As he told Team Historian Bob Verdi: "I could tell right away that these people are passionate about hockey. I came in a couple nights before the Convention, went to dinner, and already fans are recognizing me." So the smile on this selfie is no surprise:
