Kirby Dach

Kirby Dach was assigned to Rockford on Saturday for his professional hockey debut against Grand Rapids. If you’re wondering where Dach has been, he has been in concussion protocol since September 13.

Although he has missed a great deal of time, Kirby Dach has not missed a beat. He has also shown his defensive ability as well. He seems to understand that being a two-way player is very important in his development and for his future. Dach has also flashed his hands and skating ability. Here’s a great example of just how smart and quick he is with the puck on his stick.

So far, Kirby Dach has been as good as advertised. He will be playing with the Chicago Blackhawks sooner rather than later. No need to rush him back from a concussion.
