Currently, the Blackhawks have three second round picks. While that can certainly change, here is a look at a few players they could look at if deciding to go with more of a prospect with above average size.

A. Cole Beaudoin (6'2 - 201lbs) is going to be a center that could go in the early twenties all the way into the early thirties. The Hawks hold the 34th pick and if Beaudoin is still on the board would be an excellent addition.

B. Dominik Badinka (6'3 - 183lbs) is a right shot defender that should have the Blackhawks' attention as a possible great fit moving forward. The Czechia native has excellent defensive prowess and should he be available at #34 would be another prospect that would fit well into the Hawks lineup.

C. Adam Jecho (6'5 - 201lbs) a big right wing in Edmonton (WHL) should be high on alot of teams' lists in the second round. The Czech winger was just under a point per game in his first full season in North America.

D. Jesse Pulkkinen (6'6 - 216lbs) an over-ager from Finland, Pulkkinen has risen up draft boards and is now looked at as a second round selection. Playing in Liiga, Pulkkinen demonstrates good defensive technique and an intimidating presence on the ice.


There are some players that also fit this exercise from a size perspective such as Charlie Elick, Max Curran, EJ Emery, Emil Hemming, and Beckett Sennecke however we wanted to focus in on some of the prospects that may have the Chicago Blackhawks attention at the moment.

While now just two months away (Draft Lottery now set for May 7th), there will be plenty of time to debate who the Hawks should draft once the order is set. This is an early list of prospects that have at least a 6'2 frame that fans should get to know.

Which one of these players have your eye when thinking about the Blackhawks adding some size in the upcoming draft?
