There are a number of players on the Chicago Blackhawks that have a lot to prove this preseason. Very few players roster spots are secured, so it is up to each individual player to do their best to perform.
Chicago Blackhawks fans are going to have a fun time watching different players battle it out during the preseason.
This is going to be one of the most entertaining preseasons of the past handful of years. With so many new faces and practically a completely new roster this team will look different on opening night, and we could be getting some indication of what the roster might look like soon.
Before all is said and done with training camp and before the opening night lineup can be inferred, the Blackhawks have to let some different players battle it out on the ice for their spots. Let’s talk about some players that have a lot to gain during the preseason games:
1. Dylan Strome:
Dylan Strome has been with the Blackhawks the longest compared to the other skaters on this list. Strome is not someone who should have their roster spot in jeopardy but here we are.
I think everyone knows what is going on with Strome. Most fans have been asking for him to be traded throughout the offseason as it would have made sense. The team has a lot of talent at forward and he is kind of expendable, but at the same time with the uncertainty around the center men position, keeping Strome is for the best in 2021-22.
The Blackhawks preseason begins on Wednesday and I bet Strome will be playing a lot of minutes. While he has struggled at times, skill wise he should be in the lineup, but time will tell.
