Collin Graf

One of the most sought after free agents outside the NHL, Collin Graf has been sensational for Quinnipiac in the NCAA.

After beginning his collegiate career at Union College, Graf transferred to Quinnipiac for the 2022-23 season and quickly became a key member of their lineup. In two seasons, Graf has posted 105 points in 70 games with Quinnipiac, winning a National Championship in 2022-23.

Collin Graf will certainly get calls from many NHL teams once Quinnipiac's season ends, and it would be surprising if the Blackhawks were not one of them. The 6'1 194lbs forward has a solid frame with a natural ability to score goals, scoring 41 over his 70 games with Quinnipiac. Graf also can play both center or wing, though it may be more likely he remains a winger at the professional level. Along with his strong on-ice attributes, he's a proven winner after securing the National Championship last season.

If the Blackhawks extend an offer to Collin Graf, there surely will be plenty of opportunity for him in Chicago. His ability to play center or wing has been a preference of Kyle Davidson in recent drafts, with many forward prospects being able to play both. He also brings size and high-end skill to the prospect pool and most likely will challenge for a roster spot once training camp comes around.
