Playing The Rookies Was The Right Move

Playing the 3 rookies during the 2019-20 season was the right move for the Blackhawks. Adam Boqvist, Kirby Dach, and Dominik Kubalik all played a great role for the team.

Boqvist showed that he will be the future on the back-end. Dach showed great physical play, along with an improvement in the playoffs. He will be a great player for the ‘Hawks. Kubalik showed that he is a natural goal scorer (30-goals) and a Calder Trophy Finalist.

Other rookies played during the year, but those 3 were the top rookies that played for most of the season.

The trust these young players were given was enough to give them valuable experience for the future. These next few years, more rookies will come in and make an impact. The most talked-about has to be Ian Mitchell on defense. Chicago also signed European-Winger Matej Chalupa. Chalupa is built well and will be a star for the Blackhawks when given the chance to play.

"Why Chicago Blackhawks Fans Should Be Hopeful For The Future"

This team is a legitimate threat with their young stars playing. I just worry about the salary cap in a few seasons when these guys need their second contract.
