CHICAGO, IL – There is more than adequate for Lemont native Scott Darling and the Chicago Blackhawks to give a nod to “Wayne’s World” more than 20 years after the relevance of the film. It was the film that gives relevance to the Blackhawks Jersey about 15 years before the team became relevant again.
Dear, backup goaltender Blackhawks and a native of south suburban Lemont proud, threw his helmet design for next season 2016-17 with the team. It will be a tribute to “the program access Cable No.1 in the history of man.”
Design – one of the many Darling had made his home region of Chicago as a wink – shows images of Wayne Campbell (played in the 1990 film by Mike Myers) and Garth Algar (played by Dana Carvey), along with a signal of “Donuts Stan Mikita,” a fictional place made famous by the film began as a popular skit on Saturday Night Live.
“Donuts Stan Mikita” was one of the few references Blackhawks in the film that surrounds most famous duo cable access Aurora. Both Wayne and Garth were filmed several times wearing red jerseys Blackhawks.
The film was released in the year 1992, in which the Blackhawks advanced to the finals of the Stanley Cup. But the popularity of the team was nothing compared to what they have now and what was given to their counterparts Chicago Stadium, the Chicago Bulls at the time.
