If the Chicago Blackhawks are going to draft a little bit lower than expected then it probably should be for a player just finishing up a great run with the Chicago Steel. This past season with the Chicago Steel, Coronato put up 85 points in 51 games, as well as an additional 13 points in the postseason along the way to the Steel winning the championship.

"Making the case to trade every player on the Blackhawks roster"
Coronato could be a pretty good winger for Kirby Dach’s line in a couple of seasons. I think it just comes down to what Stan Bowman decides to do. Coronato could be in the Blackhawks range according to a mock draft by NHL.com, and it would be a pick that really fits with how the team operates.
We will have a lot more draft coverage in the coming weeks, but for now, keep your eye on these players!
