Panik makes Blackhawks' 6th 20-goal scorer; most since 2009-10

Somehow, the Blackhawks always find a way.

Much has been made of Chicago's salary cap casualties during its run off success over the past nine years, but general manager Stan Bowman continues to surround his core with a capable supporting cast.

Case in point: During Tuesday's loss to the Vancouver Canucks, Richard Panik became the sixth Blackhawk to record at least 20 goals this season.

Panik joined Patrick Kane (32), Artemi Panarin (24), Marian Hossa (23), Artem Anisimov (22), and Jonathan Toews (20) in the team's 20-goal club, and rookie Ryan Hartman - who's scored 18 - could soon be next.

As it stands, this is the first time since 2009-10 that Chicago has had six 20-goal scorers. That season, of course, marked Chicago's first of three Stanley Cup wins, and the Blackhawks' depth up front this season suggests another long run is quite possible.
