Brennan Othmann

Brennan Othmann is a little further down the list when it comes to rankings. But for the Blackhawks, picking up a winger that can shoot the puck might be a good idea. The team has a lot of young defensemen, but their lack of forward depth in the organization could hurt the team in a few seasons.

Othmann would be a good pick for the Blackhawks if they wanted to move down a few spots and pick up another draft pick or two. He is someone the team can plan to use in a lot of different ways as he is good off the rush and has a great shot.
