You want to rep Chicago? That's how you rep Chicago.

Lest we ever forget Scott Darling is, in fact, a local boy.

Okay, so you don't have to be from Chicago to admire Michael Jordan. We are talking, unquestionably, about one of the greatest basketball players of all time. But Jordan is best known for the 13 seasons he spent with the Bulls - so it's a little extra special for Chicago.

So... why not put Jordan on your mask? Seriously, there's no reason not to.

It's unquestionably still a Blackhawks mask - but there's just a little extra hint of greatness there now, too.
