Ed Belfour was never drafted by an NHL club, but the Chicago Blackhawks were willing to take a chance on him and the league proved to be better off for it. Only Martin Brodeur and Patrick Roy have won more regular season games than Belfour. Chicago decided to honor his time with the team on Sunday.
Belfour also played for the San Jose Sharks, Dallas Stars, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Florida Panthers during his career. He was a particularly dominant force in the playoffs and won a Stanley Cup with the Stars in 1999. He got to the finals again one year later, but lost to the New Jersey Devils in six games.
