Six Former Hawks Playing in the NHL Playoffs

So there are six NHL players currently taking part in the NHL playoffs that at one time or another donned a Winterhawks sweater. They are listed below, along with the years they playes for the Hawks and their current NHL team:

-Frazer McLaren- 2003-08- Toronto Maple Leafs.
-Andrew Ference- 1994-99- Boston Bruins (was suspended for 2 games for a hit in Game One of the series vs. Toronto).
-Brenden Morrow- 1995-99- Pittsburgh Penguins.
-Jannik Hansen- 2005-06- Vancouver Canucks (Down 0-3 in the Series).
-Marian Hossa- 1997-98- Chicago Blackhawks.
-Luca Sbisa- 2009-10- Anaheim Ducks.

Hossa and Ference both have won Stanley Cups previously, so it would be fun to see Morrow or McLaren get to hoist Hockey's biggest prize.

Random Note:
Stephane Legault was given the WHL player of the week nod, which I only favor because Edmonton played more games. He had 4 assists over 2 games, 2 assists of which were not beautiful feeds by any means, more loose pucks that happened to touch his stick.
