If you’re a Chicago Blackhawks hockey fan, you’re probably still down about this year’s Stanley Cup playoffs, which saw the defending champion Blackhawks fall in the first round to the Vancover Canucks after a dramatic seven game series. But rather than spending the offseason dejected and depressed, you can ponder buying a 2009 Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG, formerly owned by one of the team’s star players – and currently for sale on AutoTrader.com.

According to Elite Motors, located in the Chicago suburb of Mundelein, the CL63 was formerly owned by Blackhawks defender Brian Campbell, one of the team’s stars. Campbell bought the supercharged coupe new, adding custom 22-inch wheels soon after. But despite his pricey customization, Campbell didn’t keep the Mercedes long, moving on after less than two years and only 9,000 miles.

“When you’re Brian Campbell, you can afford to switch every year,” said a salesperson at Elite Motors, who added that Campbell bought the car just after signing a major deal with the Blackhawks. Indeed, Campbell agreed to an eight-year deal with the NHL team worth more than $50 million during the 2008 offseason, just before adding the high-end coupe to his stable.

Although the Blackhawks weren’t able to bring home the Stanley Cup this year, Campbell contributed significantly to the team’s Stanley Cup championship last season . A sixth-round 1997 draft pick and frequent NHL All-Star, Campbell recorded seven regular-season goals and 31 assists – plus a crucial overtime assist in game six of the Finals that clinched the cup for the Blackhawks.

Campbell’s former Mercedes, meanwhile, is a high-performance AMG-tuned variant, capable of an impressive 518 horsepower thanks to a muscular supercharged 6.2-liter V8. According to Elite Motors, the high-end two-door features adaptive cruise control, an iPod connection, parking sensors, and – like most AMG models – liberal doses of carbon fiber throughout the cabin. Of course, it also comes with the knowledge that the former owner was a top NHL player – and for some die-hard fans, that may make it worth its hefty $96,555 asking price.
