Stan Mikita
One of the smoothest playmakers of his day, Stan Mikita won the Art Ross Trophy four times and led the National Hockey League in assists three times. He was part of the Chicago Blackhawks rejuvenation of the 60’s, and though they only won the Cup once, they were a solid squad throughout the decade.

Mikita pulled off the unprecedented (and still unduplicated) feat of winning the Art Ross, Hart and Lady Byng in the same season, which he accomplished twice in both the 1966-67 and 1967-68 seasons. Although he slowed down in the 70’s, Stan Mikita was still a star attraction totaling 80 points in three consecutive campaigns from 72 to 74. As one of the smartest and most gifted stars, the career long Blackhawk retired with over 1,400 points and in the top five all time. He correctly entered the Hockey Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility.
