Roster Forwards On Entry-Level Contracts

Kirby Dach

Dominik Kubalik

Brandon Hagel

Alexander Nylander

Dylan Strome

Alex DeBrincat

Matthew Highmore

Four of these guys are hopefully going to be with the Blackhawks for a long time, the only issue is three of them are already on expiring contracts. Kirby Dach, Dylan Strome, and Dominik Kubalik are not that young, but they are still at the beginning of their careers.

I think the Blackhawks are lucky to have all of these guys already at the NHL level. Kirby Dach is the future of this team, and it is going to eventually turn into building a roster around him. I know that when you look at these names it might not seem shocking the Blackhawks have this many entry-level contracts already on their roster, but to me, it shows just how quickly Stan Bowman did begin to retool this roster.
