Today in Blackhawks History: November 17, 1926


The first Blackhawks game in National Hockey League history was held at the old Chicago Coliseum on Nov. 17, 1926, as the Hawks whipped the Toronto St. Pats, 4-1. Coached by bench boss Peter Muldoon, the team finished with a record of 19-22-3, third in the NHL's American Division. Led by future Hockey Hall of Famers Dick Irvin, Mickey MacKay, George Hay, Cecil "Babe" Dye and goaltender Hugh Lehman, the Blackhawks fell to Boston, 10-5, in the two-game total-goal Stanley Cup Quarterfinal series.
