10) D. Colorado Avalanche

By the end of the 2019-20 campaign, Toews had faced each of the Dallas Stars, Nashville Predators, and St. Louis Blues more times than the Avalanche, yet his 22 goals in their 49 meetings are his most against any opponent.

Savard not only achieved the best single-season production in franchise history, he currently owns the top four spots on that list with 131 (1987-88), 121 (1982-83), 119 (1981-82), and 116 (1985-86).

Hall’s record of 502 consecutive appearances spanned multiple seasons, none of which saw him play as many as the 74 Belfour participated in during 1990-91 alone.

Larmer’s 90 points through 1982-83, which was also enough to earn him the Calder Memorial Trophy that year, still stands alone as most by a Blackhawks’ rookie.

23) D. 15

What makes Esposito’s record-setting 15 shutouts through 1969-70 even more impressive, is that it was his rookie season with the Blackhawks.

24) B. Philadelphia Flyers

On January 30, 1969, the Blackhawks scored the most they ever have in a single game during a 12-0 shutout victory over the Flyers.

25) C. 1986
