Alex DeBrincat is currently on pace to be a Chicago Blackhawks’ all-time great.

After a really solid rookie campaign with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2017-18, Alex DeBrincat really came into his own during his second NHL season.

In his second season, DeBrincat posted 76 points (41G, 35A) with a 0 ± rating in 82 games. This would be the second time in two seasons where he played in all 82 games.

After taking a second look at his breakout season, I started to wonder where DeBrincat ranked among some of the Blackhawks’ all-time greats. Luckily, we have been blessed with an amazing hockey website called Hockey Reference.

Thanks to their hard work, I was able to answer my own question and shine a light on a player who deserves more recognition. I don’t think DeBrincat is getting his fair share of the spotlight among the hockey community.

This is where I come in and highlight the amazing pace Alex DeBrincat is on. Without further ado, let’s dive in and see where DeBrincat stands among the Chicago Blackhawks’ all-time greats, through each of their second NHL seasons.
