For those who play NHL 20, you need to have these three Chicago Blackhawks’ players on your team to stay competitive in the higher divisions.

1. Jonathan Toews (Base, 3.5K Coins)

During the last two seasons, I have had both a base Jonathan Toews and a base Patrick Kane on my team. Me telling everything that they need Kane on their team is obvious. He’s very expensive in the market though, so if you don’t play the market right, you’re not getting him.

Unless you save up a bunch of coins or pull Kane in a pack, it’s going to be impossible to get an elite, Kane. Towards the end of each year, a base Kane becomes cheaper in the market, look at that if you want to scare opponents.

I’ll say this, NHL 20 is pay-to-win. If you don’t spend money on your Ultimate Team, you’re at a disadvantage. That doesn’t make it impossible to get to Division 1 though. The first player you need to look at is Toews.

Toews is hard to knock off the puck and plays well on defense. He is the ideal center to have on your second or third line, once you are in the high divisions. Early on, an upgraded Toews can be your top center. Even though in real life Toews is a Number 1 center, in Ultimate Team, you need someone with the goal-scoring touch of Connor McDavid.

Toews isn’t McDavid, his player in NHL 20 is underrated. He still is important to have on your team.

An 87 overall, prime-time Toews is a solid skater, has a fair shot for a second or third liner, and is very underrated on defense.
