Last season the 28-year-old posted a 16-7 record with one shutout, a league-best 1.84 goals-against average, a .932 save percentage in 23 post season games, and helped the Hawks win the Stanley Cup.

Crawford ranked third in the NHL in goals-against average, fifth in save percentage, and ranked 11th in wins and shutouts during the regular season. A strong season for both Corey Crawford and Ray Emery helped them win a William M. Jennings trophy  for allowing the fewest goals against during the 2012-2013 season.

Crawford was selected by the Blackhawks in the second round, 52nd overall, in the 2003 NHL Draft.
