Chicago Blackhawks Hockey - Whenever things go wrong for the Chicago Blackhawks (which is rare these days) the first person most fans look to is the goalie. The Blackhawks have had their ups and downs between the pipes in the last 14 years and have also served as the launch pad for goalies who went on to have good careers for other teams.
Here is the list of the top 10 Chicago Blackhawks goalies of the 2000′s, but before we start we would like to let you know that the list is sorted by SAVE PERCENTAGE and the goalie had to have played in at least 40 GAMES for the Blackhawks to qualify.
10. Craig Anderson (2003-06, 56 Games Played, .892 SV%)
Right off the bat we get an example of a goalie that started his career in Chicago, but never really made a name for himself until he was on another team. Craig Anderson is now a well known name in the NHL playing for the Ottawa Senators.
In his three years in Chicago Anderson racked up a 12-29 record, so it wasn’t exactly a “shocker” when the Blackhawks dealt him. Being from Park Ridge, Anderson was looked at as the “hometown kid,” but as the record indicated he didn’t really work out in Chicago, but in 2009-10 season Anderson lead the NHL in saves while in Colorado.
On June 24, 2006: Anderson was traded to Florida by Chicago for Florida’s 6th round choice (later traded to Tampa Bay – Tampa Bay selected Luke Witkowski) in 2008 Entry Draft, June 24, 2006.
