Stan Mikita - 1967 Topps

Stanislav “Stan” Mikita (May 20, 1940 - August 7, 2018) changed his entire playing style, as his daughter questioned his game, from a “chippy” mucker/grinder type of player who never shied away from digging for pucks in the corner or taking various roughing type penalties to a game built around leadership, finesse, and playmaking. Stan was born in Slovakia before his family moved to Toronto when he was a boy. He starred for St. Catherines Teepees of the Ontario Hockey Association Junior league in the Chicago Black Hawks system. In 149 games, Mikita scored 85 goals and 137 assists from 1956-1959. He joined the Black Hawks as a full-time player and remained in the Windy City for the duration of his career (1958-1980). Mikita joined a Black Hawks squad the included Fellow Hall of Famers Bobby Hull and Pierre Pilote and All-Stars Eric Nesterenko and Kenny Wharram, playing in front of Hall of Fame backstop Glenn Hall. The Hawks built a tough, passionate team that overpowered the rival Montreal Canadiens and Detroit Red Wings (4-2 each) to take home the 1960-61 Stanley Cup Championship with Mikita leading all skaters with six goals in 12 games. In the 1961-62 Stanley Cup playoffs, the Hawks’ attempt to repeat as champions was thwarted by the Toronto Maple Leafs in 6 games and Mikita led all skaters again, though in assists that season (15). From 1963-1968, Stan led the NHL three times in assists and four times in total points. He won the 1964, 1965, 1967 and 1968 Art Ross Trophy as the NHL’s leading points scorer. He was namee the NHL’s Most Valuable Player in back-to-back years in 1967 and 1968 also capturing the Lady Byng Memorial Trophies for those years as well highlighting his gentlemanly conduct on the ice. He scored 97 and 87 points, respectively, during those seasons while collecting only 12 and 14 penalty minutes. Though Mikita’s personal career success did not necessarily dictate the Chicago Black Hawks success, Stan did lead the Hawks to the playoffs in 18 of his 22 seasons in Chicago. Stan was named to six NHL All-Star First Teams and played in nine NHL All-Star Games. Stan finished his career with 541 regular season goals and 926 assists for 1,467 points in 1,394 games. He added 59 career playoff goals and 91 assists in 155 games bringing home one championship. Stan Mikita was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1983. Stan remains a goodwill ambassador for the Chicago Blackhawks organization.
