There are plenty of notable skaters on the Chicago Blackhawks that won already won a Stanley Cup, and that even includes a newcomer between the pipes with Cam Ward (2006 Carolina Hurricanes). Skaters such as Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, Brandon Saad, Corey Crawford and company have all won multiple Cups.
Though, forward Artem Anisimov would act as the Blackhawks best player that is still searching for his first Stanley Cup ring. The Russian native was acquired via trade during the 2015 offseason from the Columbus Blue Jackets, so Anisimov just missed a run to the Stanley Cup Final with the Hawks.
The former second-round draft pick (2006) has played well since joining Chicago, while recording 20 or more goals in each of his three seasons with the Original Six franchise. Since joining the league in 2008-09, the 30-year-old has netted 148 goals and tallied 162 assists for 310 career points.
Though, last season, Anisimov recorded his lowest point total (31) since 2014-15 (27); but he also only managed to dress in 52 games that year. Both he and the Blackhawks are looking to have a bounce back season considering that Chicago missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2007-08.
Anisimov’s current contract expires after the 2021 campaign, and the odds aren’t looking great for the Hawks to win another Stanley Cup during that span. Still, the former New York Rangers could be dealt before then, considering his contract is team-friendly with a $4.5 million salary-cap hit.
