Blackhawks' Deep History with Number 10



The Chicago Blackhawks, one of the NHL's original six, have retired a mere six numbers in their franchise.

But here's an idea: it's probable we'll see it elevated to the rafters soon.

The name that resonates most with the number 10 is Patrick Sharp. As a pivotal figure from 2006 to 2018, Sharp showcased his skills in 749 games, netting 249 goals and a total of 532 points.

His standout performances during the playoffs were key to the Blackhawks clinching three Stanley Cup titles. While it's still awaiting official confirmation, all signs suggest the potential unveiling of a jersey retirement ceremony in a near future.

Let's not forget that Sharp is still a member of the Blackhawks, as he joined the organization as Special Advisor to Hockey Operations.

Do you think Sharp's number will be retired?
