Chicago Blackhawks’ Rookies of Today

While yesterday’s rookies were certainly impressive, the Blackhawks’ rookies of today are no slouches.

Top prospects Kirby Dach and Adam Boqvist are sure to make an instant impact, whenever and wherever they get their shot.

As of now, they have a legitimate shot at suiting up for Chicago in 2019-20, but we will learn more in the next few weeks.

Until then, let’s admire what’s in store for us in the near future. Feel free to watch the following clips on a loop, because I already have.

While we all have the right to be extremely excited about Dach and Boqvist, we can’t forget about the other impressive prospects that Stan Bowman has assembled.

Out of all the current Chicago Blackhawks potential rookies, I’d give Kubalik, Saarela, and Wedin the best odds of cracking the 2019-20 NHL roster at this time.

They have some great rookie performances to follow. Let’s hope they are up for the challenge.
