Each week, the Blackhawks Blog takes you around the AHL, ECHL, NCAA and junior hockey ranks to award three Hawks prospects the chicagoblackhawks.com Three Stars of the Week.

1st Star: G Mac Carruth / Portland (WHL)
The Line: 4 Games Played, 4 Wins, 0 Losses, 3 Goals Allowed

The Western Hockey League’s Portland Winterhawks are off to a torrid start in 2012-13, with a 16-3-1 overall record and rolling with a 12-game winning streak. One of the biggest keys to that amazing run has been the play of 2010 Blackhawks draft pick Mac Carruth, who is a perfect 9-0-0 so far and has surrendered less than a goal per game on average. In four appearances this week, Carruth gave up one goal in each of his three starts – including a 43-save effort on Saturday against Spokane – and came on in relief of fellow Portland netminder Brendan Burke, securing the win as the Winterhawks tallied the final four goals in a 9-5 win at Vancouver. Carruth currently leads the WHL in save percentage (.967) and goals-against average (0.97).

While 26-year-old netminder Carter Hutton has been turning heads in Rockford and working his way up the Blackhawks' organizational depth chart, he could soon become a part of another fraternity: no fewer than 93 NHL players have come from the area that now comprises Thunder Bay, Ont., -- four towns joined to form the city back in 1970 -- including current Blackhawks Assistant General Manager Norm Maciver. Of those 93, 19 have played for Chicago.

On Monday, Oct. 15, Blackhawks Television Color Analyst Eddie Olczyk will be officially inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame in Dallas, Texas. Olczyk will be the 17th Blackhawk in franchise history to be honored with that distinction, and he spent time on the same side of the ice with five of the other 16 inductees (none of the remaining 11 laced up their skates for the Blackhawks past 1950)! The well-connected Illinois native's teammates are outlined in today's edition of The Friday Five: The Six Degrees of Eddie O.

The National Hockey League granted a Chicago franchise to Major Frederick McLaughlin on Sept. 25, 1926, one of three American teams added to the league that year (along with the Detroit Cougars—later Red Wings—and the New York Rangers). McLaughlin, who had been a commander with the 333rd Machine Gun Battalion of the 86th Infantry Division during World War I, named the team in honor of his military unit, which took its "Black Hawks" moniker from Chief Black Hawk of the Sauk nation.
