Top 3 Underrated Players During the Blackhawks Dynasty Run
Building off of my previous article about the top three playoff series during the Blackhawks dynasty run, my next list is the top three underrated players from that time period. We all know about the legends like Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, and so on, but who are the important players that do not get as much recognition? This list shows my top three players who did not get as much of the spotlight from the Blackhawks championship run.
Number 3: Micheal Frolik
From the 2010-2011 season through the 2012-2013 season, Michael Frolik was a point making machine for the Blackhawks. In those three seasons, Frolik's playoff stats read 7 goals and 11 assists in 34 games played.
During the 2013 Stanley Cup Championship run, Frolik had 3 goals and 7 assists with one of those goals being a game winning goal. 2013 was Frolik's first real playoff run as he played in 23 games compared to 7 games and 4 games in seasons prior. He averaged about 13 minutes a night with 24 hits and 17 blocks. Frolik was a key contributor to the 2013 Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks, and many forget his impact with the Hawks in his short time here.
