C Jeremy Roenick - Selected 8th overall in the 1988 Entry Draft

One of the greatest American-born goalscorers in franchise and league history, Roenick was an undisputed gem for the Blackhawks, who selected him in the first round of the 1988 Entry Draft.

C Troy Murray - Selected 57th overall in the 1980 Entry Draft

Another great value from the 1980 Blackhawks draft class - the same one that brought Denis Savard, Steve Larmer, Steve Ludzik and Jerome Dupont to Chicago, as well - the 57th overall selection became shutdown centerman Troy Murray.

Patrick Kane's overtime winner in Game 6 gave the Blackhawks their first Stanley Cup since 1961.

The Blackhawks captured their fourth Stanley Cup on June 9, 2010, on Patrick Kane's goal 4:06 into overtime at Philadelphia. An estimated 2 million Blackhawks fans turned out two days later in downtown Chicago to honor the new champions.

On June 6, one of the Blackhawks' defensemen added blew out one more candle on his birthday cake. That's right, Blackhawks blueliner Niklas Hjalmarsson turned 25 on Wednesday.

As a celebration of the Swedish import's special day, we bring you The Friday Five: Niklas Hjalmarsson Edition. Swedish meatballs for all!

1. Among the 230 players drafted in the 2005 NHL Draft, Niklas Hjalmarsson is one of only nine defenseman to have played in over 260 NHL games.

C Jonathan Toews - Selected 3rd overall in the 2006 Entry Draft

There are more chapters to be written in Jonathan Toews' career, but its difficult to imagine a scenario that worked out better than the Blackhawks' top pick in 2006. In a draft class loaded with talented forwards - Washington's Nicklas Backstrom, Toronto's Phil Kessel and Philadelphia's Claude Giroux were among others taken in 2006's first round - it could be argued that none have achieved as much as Toews has in his career.

LW Darcy Rota - Selected 13th overall in the 1973 Entry Draft

One of the top snipers of his draft class, Darcy Rota finished his final junior hockey season with 73 goals in 68 games for the WCJHL's Edmonton Oil Kings, and was selected by the Blackhawks with the 13th overall pick in the 1973 Entry Draft.

LW Eric Daze - Selected 90th overall in the 1993 Entry Draft.

Immensely talented and highly productive, despite playing through back injuries, many would say that Eric Daze's Blackhawks career ended too soon. It's difficult not to agree, especially with the impressive way Daze began his NHL career after being drafted by the Blackhawks in 1993.

Denis Savard, in a Montreal Juniors sweater.

Before the Blackhawks take the podium to announce the 18th overall selection of the 2012 NHL Draft, the Blackhawks Blog takes you through the history of the team's greatest draft picks, and how they spent their time in the Blackhawks sweater.

C Denis Savard - Selected 3rd overall in the 1980 Entry Draft.

When the Montreal Canadiens - perhaps surprisingly - passed on Montreal Juniors standout Denis Savard in favor of center Doug Wickenheiser, the Blackhawks were happy to select him with the third overall pick.

It is unlikely that anyone around the team ever regretted the selection.
