2. Alex DeBrincat Continues To Score A Lot Of Goals:

The Chicago Blackhawks have a goal scoring machine on their wing in Alex DeBrincat. At least they did last season.

The Blackhawks need Alex DeBrincat to replicate the success he had last season again this year and then some. DeBrincat is a great winger that can score a lot of goals, but this season it is time for him to hit another level and become someone people around the league talk about.

DeBrincat is going to be stepping up in a leadership position this season, but he needs to go further than that. Last season he scored 32 goals in 52 games, leading the team in goals. This year hopefully he can do eve more.His ice time was at a career high at 20:32, and hopefully that number can go even higher this season.

DeBrincat is someone that the Blackhawks are going to want on the ice no matter the situation, as he is as good away from the puck compared to with it. So if he can continue to score a lot of goals – around the 40 goal mark again then the team will be in good shape.

This is only really a question mark due to the fact that in 2019-20 he did only have 18 goals in 70 games.
