1. Alex DeBrincat leads the scoring race in the division.

Alex DeBrincat is a one-of-a-kind player. He had a great season in 2020-21 leading the Blackhawks in goals with 32 in 52 games. DeBrincat outscored Kane by a crazy amount and I think he is just getting started.

The Blackhawks might not be leading the league in points by the end of next season, but I do think DeBrincat will be leading the scoring race amongst players in this division. He was third in the league this last season behind only Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews, that is not bad company to be keeping in the scoring race.

I think next season is going to be the year that solidifies DeBrincat as the new face of the Chicago Blackhawks. He was good this past season, but next year is going to be a completely different level.
