USA

The Chicago Blackhawks Team USA representatives are some prospects that fans should be excited about watching.   Vincent Hinostroza and Tyler Motte will be playing for team USA.

Tyler Motte had a great college career at the University Of Michigan, and then he had a very nice pro debut when he joined the Rockford Ice Hogs at the tale end of their season.  In 5 games with the Hogs, Motte scored 2 goals and collected 3 assists.  Motte is an offensive player that fans should keep their eyes on during the tournament.

Vincent Hinostroza played in 6 games with the Chicago Blackhawks without hitting the scoresheet this past season.  He showed his talent but didn’t stick with the Hawks.  He had a good season in Rockford playing in 66 games scoring 18 times with 33 helpers.  He’s played well in tournaments before especially in juniors so expect a good showing from Hinostroza.

Germany

The only player from Germany from the Chicago Blackhawks in the World Championships is Christian Ehrhoff.  Ehrhoff didn’t get much of a shot with the Blackhawks so his legs should be well rested for the tournament. He did play in 8 games with the Chicago Blackhawks picking up 2 assists and will be a very very small footnote in Chicago Blackhawks history.
