Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks were unlikely to make the Traverse City Championship game tonight unless they blew out the Carolina Hurricanes rookie squad on Monday, well they did just that! 

If you were looking for good things from Alex DeBrincat for a third straight game then you came to the right place.

DeBrincat is playing like the player that scored 60 goals in juniors last season for the Erie Otters, and he showing that no matter what you have to say about fundamentals and playing players in skills competitions that he’s a force to be reckoned with when it’s game time!  He could become the hockey version of Allen Iverson.

One thing is for certain about these Chicago Blackhawks with Jonathan Toews leading the way, and that is you have to work hard off the ice and at practice.  This was reportedly Teuvo Teravainen‘s biggest flaw, and it’s already been said that DeBrincat struggles in this area as well.

That being said when it’s game time, DeBrincat knows how to find space and really knows how to be a true sniper.

DeBrincat wasn’t the only star of the game. Luc Snuggerud had a 5 point game yesterday evening which included a short handed goal and a power play goal.  Snuggerud probably is headed to Rockford, but DeBrincat has his eyes set on the Chicago Blackhawks roster that’s for sure.

The Championship game is played tonight in Traverse City, so good luck to the young Chicago Blackhawks!
