The 1929–30 Chicago Black Hawks season was the team's fourth season in the NHL. After a two-year absence, the Hawks would return to the playoffs, losing to the Montreal Canadiens in the first round of the playoffs.

Regular season[edit]

They were coming their second straight season of winning only 7 games, and finishing in last place in the league. The Black Hawks would make yet another coaching change, hiring Tom Shaughnessy. The Hawks would surprise the league, getting off to a 10–8–3 start, however, the team would fire Shaughnessy and replace him with Bill Tobin. Tobin would lead Chicago to a record of 11–10–2, and they would finish the year with a 21–18–5 record, tripling their win total from the previous season, to finish in second place in the American Division, and make the playoffs for the second time in team history. The Black Hawks would set team records with wins, points and goals for, and finish above .500 for the first time in team history.

Despite the brand new Chicago Stadium being built and ready at the start of the season, the Hawks would play a few home games at Chicago Coliseum due to a disagreement with the Chicago Stadium Corporation, however it was resolved in December, and the Hawks moved in.

Chicago was led offensively by young players Tom Cook, who at 22, led the club with 30 points, and Johnny Gottselig, at 23 years old, leading the Black Hawks with 21 goals. Team captain Duke Dutkowski would lead all Black Hawk defensemen with 17 points in 44 games.

In goal, Chuck Gardiner would once again get all the playing time, setting a Black Hawks team record with 21 wins, and have 3 shutouts, along with a 2.42 GAA.
