It was Ed Belfour Heritage Night at the United Center Sunday, but the Blackhawks found a curious way to celebrate it.

The Hawks were honoring their longtime goalie, Eddie “the Eagle,” on his induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame last year. Belfour, for fans who have only joined the Hawks since their Stanley Cup campaign two years ago, won the Calder Trophy as NHL rookie of the year and the Vezina Trophy as the league’s best goaltender in 1990-’91, when he claimed 43 victories, still a single-season Hawks record. He had a difficult year the following season but pulled it together for the playoffs to help get the Hawks into the Cup finals, where fate (and quality) caught up with them in the form of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Belfour played eight seasons with the Hawks before going on to complete a 20-year career that earned him a place in hockey’s hall.

Unfortunately, the Hawks made it seem as if they could still use him Sunday.
