The first Stan Mikita appearance on the professional, competitive hockey scene was with the St. Catharine’s Teepees of the Ontario Hockey Association. With his spectacular performance, he was promoted to the parent Chicago Blackhawks in 1959. In only his second season, he led the Hawks to its third Stanley Cup.
Mikita was the center of the famed “Scooter Line.” He was the most feared center of his generation, and with superstar teammate Bobby Hull, the Blackhawks had the most powerful offense and defense of the decade. Mikita also led the league in scoring four times in the decade.
