A recap of the Chicago Blackhawks’ current goalie situation.

Following the Chicago Blackhawks’ 3-2 overtime win against the Boston Bruins on Saturday night, they sent goaltender Kevin Lankinen to the Rockford IceHogs. Lankinen joined fellow netminder, Matt Tomkins, who was cut earlier in the day.

This time last year, two-time Stanley Cup champion, Corey Crawford, was still battling a concussion issue.

Veteran, Cam Ward, was slated to be the Blackhawks’ number one goalie, after signing a one-year deal, and Anton Forsberg was battling Collin Delia for the backup spot.

This year, however, things look a lot different and the goaltending position now has some depth to it.

With a surprise signing in Robin Lehner to go along with some talented prospects, here’s a breakdown on the outlook of the Chicago Blackhawks’ goaltending position.
