Everyone wants to look like a winner. Hockey fans are no different.

According to Licensing Outlook, three Blackhawks rank in the top six in national hockey jersey sales. Jonathan Toews is No. 1, while Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa are Nos. 5 and 6.

Brian Urlacher’s jersey is No. 10 in national sales, though the Bears released him in March and he retired in May. And while Derrick Rose didn’t play last season, but his jersey was still the fifth most popular among NBA players. Chicago native Dwyane Wade was seventh.

The only major sport without a Chicago player in the Top 10 is baseball, and after the seasons the Cubs and Sox have had (a combined 115-162 going into Thursday), that should come as no surprise.
