The Chicago Blackhawks season is just a few weeks away, and even if the team might not be that great, there are still plenty of reasons to get excited.

The NHL season is just 56 games this year. That means every game matters just a little bit more. Every mistake costs the Blackhawks just a little more, and the franchise will enjoy every step of the way.

Now I know that some might not be excited about the coming season. Chicago sports are not at an all-time high, and that includes the rebuilding Blackhawks. Even if the team is going to miss out on the playoffs and could struggle due to the club’s current state, they still will provide some fresh hockey for fans.

I have missed having hockey around night after night, and even if the Blackhawks are not at their best, every day puts the team closer to their next Stanley Cup within the next five years. Not having hockey this season year would have just prolonged Chicago’s challenges. Allowing the team to start playing let’s everyone see where this roster is at.

There are reasons for excitement when it comes to the Chicago Blackhawks. Let’s go over three today.
