Challenge Cup
An unsponsored cup competition in the UK, exclusive to Superleague teams, which was a replacement for The Express Cup which was discontinued when the Superleague failed to agree terms with the newspaper. When the Superleague folded and was replaced by the Elite League, they adopted the competition.
i. 1998-99 : A made-for-TV competition with three games - the final and both legs of the Nottingham Panthers v Cardiff Devils semi-final - shown on BBC's Sunday Grandstand. The first round also counted towards Superleague points rather than being played as a seperate competition. After each side had played the others home and away, the leading four teams qualified for the semi-finals with first meeting fourth and second playing third, also over home and away legs. The cup winner was decided in a one off final.
ii. 1999-00 : The same format as 1998-99 with just highlights from the final, which was sponsored by Alamo Car Rental, featured on BBC's Sunday Grandstand.
iii. 2002-03 : The Superleague teams were joined by British National League side Coventry Blaze. The preliminary round was held on a home & away basis with the eight teams split into two regional groups. The top two in each group played in the one-off semi-finals held at Sheffield Arena. The winners met in the one-off final held at the MEN Arena in Manchester.
iv. 2003-04 : The first round of games, both home & away, between the eight Elite League members counted towards the Challenge Cup, with the top four teams progressing. The top team played the fourth team and the second team played the third team - home & away - aggregate scores. The final between the winning teams was also played on a home & away basis with the team finishing higher in the original standings receiving choice of home leg.

Chicago, Illinois, USA. Before the 1986-87 season the Blackhawks were usually referred to as Black Hawks - because of a poor stitching job. In May 1926, when Major Frederic McLaughlin became the owner of the new NHL franchise in Chicago, he named the team after his WWI battalion in the 86th Division - also known as the Blackhawk Division. The team jersey was designed with the Indian head encircled with Blackhawks at the top and Chicago at the bottom - because the k and the h didn't quite meet, the sportswriters reported the team name as Black Hawks. It wasn't until 1986 that the error was officially corrected. Joined the National Hockey League in 1926 and were placed in the American Division where they stayed until the 1938-39 season when the NHL reduced to a single division. When the NHL re-introduced divisions in 1967-68 Chicago were placed in the East Division but from the 1970-71 season they switched to the West Division. When the conference/division structure was introduced in 1974-75 Chicago moved into the Smythe Division of the Clarence Campbell Conference until 1980-81.  In 1981-82 Chicago moved to the Norris Division of the Clarence Campbell Conference. When the structure was changed again in 1993-94 Chicago were placed in the Central Division of the Western Conference
