2. Patrick Kane

Even though the Blackhawks youth movement is in full swing, this is still the Patrick Kane show in Chicago. The Blackhawks’ top forward will definitely be logging some crazy minutes. This player might be hard to get on your fantasy team, but if you can pick him, do so because even if he is on a struggling team, Kane finds ways to rise to the occasion.

In years past, we have seen the Blackhawks top two lines to be the Toews line and the Kane line. Both were pretty great, and it was fun watching opposing teams defend one with their best defenders and then leave the other line open for some soft goals.

With Toews out of the lineup, all eyes will be on Patrick Kane in Chicago, and I think he can definitely rise to the occasion and be a spark both in the lineup and on your fantasy team.

3. Dylan Strome

We have talked a lot about Strome the past few days, but all things considered, he has all of the tools to make this season a year to remember for his personal stats. With players like Jonathan Toews and Kirby Dach out, Strome is the guy in Chicago.

Dylan Strome will be playing on the Blackhawks’ top line, and he will be taking up considerable minutes on a team that features players like Carl Soderberg, Lucas Wallmark, and David Kampf as the other centers on this roster.

Strome’s two-year contract shows Chicago is willing to commit to Dylan Strome a little more than we thought when he went unsigned till just a day before training camp. While it took a long time to get him his contract, Strome is now with the team for the next two years.

With a Strome, Kane, DeBrincat pairing, there is no telling how many points the Blackhawks top line could potentially put up. Like the Colorado Avalanche in years past, Chicago is set to be a one-line team, but they don’t have the other pieces to win just yet.
