Forbes released its annual list of most valuable NHL franchises and the Blackhawks came in at No. 5, at $625 million.
The report says the average NHL team is worth $413 million, up 46 percent more than last year.
The defending Stanley Cup champions surpassed the average in value and growth, increasing their worth by 79 percent. The only team that increased by a greater percentage is the Vancouver Canucks, who more than doubled at 105 percent.
The Toronto Maple Leafs once again led the charts, coming in at $1.15 billion. Last year, they were the first team to crack the billion-dollar mark, and this season they're seeing a 15 percent value increase.
