Chicago Blackhawks fans only have 7 more games left on the schedule which means there is only a few more games left to see if the Chicago Blackhawks can get some winning mojo before the season ends.

It’s been tough watching the Chicago Blackhawks lose and some say tank to get a higher draft pick, but it’s possible that the Chicago Blackhawks fans could be rooting for a different kind of loss this weekend.

Northeastern is in the Frozen Four Tourney, and with that it means that the top Chicago Blackhawks prospect Dylan Sikura will be one of the featured players.

The thing is, if he was to lose once this weekend his college career would be over which means that Stan Bowman could sign him to a contract and get him on the roster ASAP.

Mark Lazerus from the Chicago Sun-Times is stating that a source says if the Chicago Blackhawks prospect does lose in the Frozen Four he will sign with the Blackhawks and be in the lineup on Thursday night when the Blackhawks host the Winnipeg Jets.

Trust me, I’m not one that roots for losses ever.. I never wanted the Chicago Blackhawks to be in this position with 7 games left with no shot at the playoffs, nor do I root for one of the Chicago Blackhawks prospects to lose just to end his college career.

I will say if he does lose it will be incredible to see him sign a contract with the Chicago Blackhawks and see what he can do in the final 5 games of the season.

It could really give all of us a boost heading into what will be our longest offseason in over a decade.

Sikura looked great during rookie camp and training camp and many said he looked better than Alex DeBrincat did and look what he did this season.

The Chicago Blackhawks youth will decide on how fast they rebuild or re-tool, the core will only be along for the ride with Sikura being part of that youth movement.

I will be rooting for Northeastern to go all the way, but I won’t be crushed if they lose with Sikura in the lineup sooner than later.  This season has made us all a little crazy with our emotions!
