2. Alex DeBrincat, forward

Although a lot of people were hard on DeBrincat for not really showing up at prospect camp, he is still a top-tier talent.  Training camp might be a different story for the young sniper.

He did thrive playing alongside great centers like Dylan Strome and Conor McDavid.  Maybe plug him in with Artem Anisimov or Jonathan Toews and we’ll see if that productivity goes up.

It will take time for him to get a feel for pro hockey, and the Blackhawks are in no rush.  It would be nice to see him do well in Rockford and give that team some positive morale.
