2013 – Ryan Hartman

Nicknamed the “new Andrew Shaw” by a lot of fans, everyone expected Ryan Hartman to be a Blackhawks player for a long time. He grew up here and liked playing for the team. Hartman fell victim to a crumbling team at the wrong time, and ultimately, got traded to the Nashville Predators in 2018.

Hartman played in 141 games with the Chicago Blackhawk and registered 57 points. His only issue was that he never found a reliable home. Hartman bounced around a lot on all 4 of the Blackhawks’ lines. Some would say that makes him a versatile player, who could play in any position. However, you might also call that an inability to succeed on any of them, which may be why he was traded.
