Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- Fancy Feast

CHICAGO, IL - NOVEMBER 15: Alex DeBrincat
CHICAGO, IL - NOVEMBER 15: Alex DeBrincat /

Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks rookie Alex DeBrincat scored in the 2nd period last night which set off a bunch of Cat GIF pics which really is fun to see, but not as exciting as seeing the Hawks score a goal!

The Chicago Blackhawks rookie has been very impressive, and the best part is that he seems to be getting better and more confident each time he takes the ice.  DeBrincat keeps scoring even though Joel Quenneville keeps handcuffing him by not playing him alongside the bigger offensive guns on the roster.

DeBrincat scored his 7th goal of the season and he’s been on lines with Lance Bouma and Tanner Kero instead of Patrick Kane and Nick Schmaltz.  I don’t understand it when he’s proven to be defensively responsible.

During the 1st  intermission Bob McKenzie talked about what the Hawks need to do to turn things around, and he said that the franchise doesn’t want to send DeBrincat down which would have been a tough sentence to swallow.  The Hawks really need to do something which in my eyes is sit Patrick Sharp down, but it doesn’t look like that is likely anytime soon.

Before the season started I said Alex DeBrincat would be a Calder Trophy Winner, and now he’s at least getting his name into the early season talk about the award.

One thing that is certain is that the DeBrincat goal turned the tide in what looked like a possible Rangers win to a Chicago Blackhawks blowout!
