Eddie Belfour played his brash, fearless style of goaltending for the Blackhawks for the better part of nine seasons, nearly half of an illustrious career that landed "Eddie the Eagle" in the Hockey Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2011. This Sunday, March 25, the Blackhawks will celebrate the netminder's legacy with Ed Belfour Heritage Night. Here's how you can gear up for the occasion:

The only other active NHLers who have reached that plateau are Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin. The 23-year-old is now the third player in Blackhawks history with 20-plus goals in each of his first five NHL seasons, joining Jonathan Toews and Denis Savard.

Marian Hossa's 900th career point came in the form of a power-play goal scored from the middle of the slot at 4:09 of the third period against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
