The Chicago Blackhawks had a rather busy week. Whether it was the Maatta trade, the draft, or the beginning of free agency. Chicago is looking to the future.
Right now, the Chicago Blackhawks are finally entering some form of a rebuild. Deciding not to keep Corey Crawford was just the starting point. We might finally start to see the team jump into next season with more young guys around than ever.
With that in mind, there is a lot of opportunities on this team. Chicago has spots open, and while we might not see the 2020 draft class for a few years, they all will get an opportunity down the line.
Our staff got together to share their thoughts on the Blackhawks 2020 draft class, and like most prospects, there were a lot of varying reports. While we all shared some predictions and grades for the pick, we won’t know for sure where they fit in the organization until they get a chance to prove themselves.
This draft featured players from every position getting drafted to the Blackhawks. We have a goalie, some forwards, and a lot of defensemen. Chicago added eight players at this year’s NHL draft, and let’s talk about each one of them.
