The Chicago Blackhawks are one of the four American teams that were part of the NHL Original Six. The team has won four Stanley Cups, tied for third-most among American teams. The most recent win was in 2010, when a young team led by Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane beat the Philladelphia Flyers. Over the past decade, the Blackhawks actually have had the ninth worst record in hockey, but their recent successes and fan base (the highest attendance in 2010) buoyed the team’s value.
