Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks rookie tournament team won their first game of the tourney yesterday with Alex DeBrincat scoring twice including late in the third period for the Game winning goal.
Ok, first off you are going to read that Alex DeBrincat isn’t fundamentally sound, and that he’s scoring against beer league prospects from the negative nelly’s out there!
I don’t really care because all i know is that DeBrincat scored in Juniors, and guess what…. he’s scoring at the rookie tournament. A sniper is a sniper and that’s exactly what DeBrincat is!
I think the best thing DeBrincat did wasn’t the two goals or the assist, it’s the fact that he has a lot of fight in him literally as he took on a Red Wing rookie that had him by quite a few inches.
So I know he’s not beating Pekka Rinne out there in Traverse City, but if he isn’t afraid to throw a punch and he’s scoring multiple times, I can’t wait to see him in training camp with me begging Joel Quenneville to put him with Patrick Kane.

The other player of real note at the tourney is Alexandre Fortin, but he didn’t play yesterday because the franchise is taking it slow after he had some surgery. Fortin is expected to play in Monday’s contest.
