This guy, and another guy

We are nearing the end, folks. Next week will be the final week of this series that is even longer than a lockout! Two players have worn #58 for the franchise, for a grand total of 15 games and counting...

Mario Doyon - Doyon was a defenseman drafted by the Blackhawks in 1986. He played 7 games with the Hawks in '88-89 and then was moved to Quebec in the Michel Goulet deal in March of 1990. He spent two seasons with Quebec, playing in 21 games and scoring 5 points, 12 games wearing #58. After his NHL stint, he bounced around the AHL, Europe, eventually closing out his career in the CHL.

Patrick Bordeleau - I believe some of you have heard of this player? The rather large forward was drafted by the Wild in 2004 but they did not sign him. He turned pro in 2007 and played with NINE different teams in the ECHL and AHL before finally landing a full-time gig with Lake Erie in 2009. Bordy earned a tryout invitation with the Avalanche for their 2010 camp and then the Avs signed him in 2011. After four years in Cleveland, Bordeleau finally made the NHL at the start of this season. See, I knew if I jogged your memory, you'd remember.
