The Chicago Blackhawks have some gems on their roster, including a few bash brothers. Brandon Hagel and Vinnie Hinostroza have only been playing together for about a month now, but their chemistry is growing quickly.

The Blackhawks are lucky to have Hagel and Hinostroza on their team. The self-declared bash brothers scored a great goal last night that involved both of them.

Brandon Hagel was driving up the ice and was driving into the corner. Then he dealt out a beautiful saucer pass over to Vinnie Hinostroza who buried the puck into the net for his third goal with the Blackhawks.

Hinostroza has been on fire with the Blackhawks since joining the team, and with Hagel, the two have some great chemistry. Brandon Hagel might be the best offensive rookie the Hawks have added this year.

Kurashev and Suter are also great, but Hagel provides something this team desperately needs. All year long Hagel’s role with the team has continued to grow to the point where it is not something that can be ignored anymore, now he is given a great spot with some good linemates.

Going into last night’s game, the Blackhawks announced that Hagel, Dach, and Hinostroza would all be on the same line, and that is great to see.

Obviously, Dach is still getting better from his wrist injury back in December, but the team is still pushing forward. Dach won 83 percent of his faceoffs tonight and that is really great for the team.

Take a look at the beautiful goal the team scored last night.

With the way that pass went Brandon Hagel definitely was a steal for the Blackhawks. While the Blackhawks coaching staff has made some questionable moves, playing Hagel with Hinostroza is not one of them.

After the game there was one pretty cool quote that I want to share via Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times.

Hinostroza is a Chicago Blackhawk and hopefully will be for a long time! The Blackhawks have another game against the Florida Panthers on Saturday.
